Hangsterfer’s Metalworking Lubricants Increasing Involvement with AB Motorsports, Angelle Sampey

As they enter their 11th season as an energetic supporter of AB Motorsports and three time NHRA Top Fuel world champion Antron Brown, Hangsterfer’s Metalworking Lubricants has announced that they are increasing their involvement with ABM.

Hangsterfer’s will become the primary partner on the A/Fuel Dragster driven by three time NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle champion Angelle Sampey for her final 10 races on the 2024 NHRA calendar.

Mike Ditzel, Global Director of Performance Products, had this to say, “We wanted to ensure that Angelle, Antron and the entire Michalek Brothers Racing team had all the necessary resources to race towards the Lucas Oil Series championship this season. We said many times how important the relationship with AB Motorsports, Antron and the sport of NHRA Drag Racing is to our business and customer base, and with (car owner) Kyle Michalek running a machine shop, this was a very simple choice for us. We’re thrilled to debut a vibrant livery that highlights Hangsterfer’s story on the track while Angelle and Antron continue to do a terrific job of telling that story off the track.”

Angelle, who earned her NHRA A/Fuel license last August, made her four wheel debut at the NHRA FallNationals near Dallas last October as part of the ABM Accelerate program and competed in the final three events of the 2023 season. She will compete in at least 13 races this season and has two Lucas Oil Series runner up finishes in seven Top Alcohol Dragster events.

She had this to say about the increased support, “I’m so very thankful to Mike Ditzel and everyone at Hangsterfer’s for continuing to support our team so we can race for the 2024 championship and continue to spread the word about Hangsterfer’s and what a great line of products they offer. I continue to learn and improve driving this A/Fuel Dragster and our MBR team has so much potential and I’m so excited to put this beautiful green and black car in the winner’s circle soon.”

The Hangsterfer’s Metalworking Lubricants A/Fuel Dragster, owned and maintained by Ohio based Michalek Brothers Racing, will be making its on track debut at the May 3rd – 4th Indy 800 Cleetus and Cars event at Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park. Angelle is a two time Pro Stock Motorcycle winner (’01, ’02) of the prestigious US Nationals at IRP. Aside from the Indy 800 Cleetus and Cars race, the Hangsterfer’s dragster will compete in at least nine additional events in the Lucas Oil and Mission Foods series during the 2024 season.
