Angelle Sampey and the Vance & Hines team: the not-so-odd couple - NHRA.com

When it comes to unlikely pairings Angelle Sampey and the Vance & Hines team go about as well as orange juice and toothpaste. At least at first glance.

Since her arrival in 1996, Sampey has often been at odds with the Vance & Hinescrew.
