Victory Motorcycles is taking a bold step into the world of NHRA Pro Stock Motorcycle Drag Racing by creating a Victory Factory Racing team.

Leading the Victory effort will be the riding team of two-time World Champion Matt Smith and his wife/co-rider Angie who will ride two converted ‘Gunner’ models.

Victory intends to compete at the pinnacle of the sport and anticipates a strong and professional effort with the skills and experience of Matt and Angie Smith.

“Victory is excited to enter the world of NHRA Pro Stock Drag Racing,” said Steve Menneto, VP Motorcycles for Polaris. “It is Victory’s intent to continue to test ourselves at the highest levels and the Victory Factory Racing Team is the perfect opportunity for us.”

The excitement at an NHRA event is a natural match to the excitement that Victory aims to put in to every one of its motorcycles.

Drag racing is an opportunity to share that excitement with Victory owners and dealers around the country.

Drag racing fans can get really close to the action at NHRA events and watch the teams prep the bikes for their next runs.

Victory is going to host hospitality areas at future races to allow owners to feel the heat from these powerful machines.
