Team Safety Sentry Motorsports will attack the 2011 Pro Stock Motorcycle competition with the addition of rider Angie Smith. Safety Sentry Inc. produces the Safety Sentry Hitch Lock, which helps safeguard trailers against detachment, theft, and accidents.
J.D. Coffman, owner of Coffman Tank Trucks, brought Pro Stock Motorcycle rider Smith into the Team Safety Sentry Motorsports fold. The team will begin its season at the Tire Kingdom NHRA Gatornationals in Gainesville March 10-13.
“Bob and I met in Sonoma in 2010 and have built a great relationship that has brought us to this point,” said Coffman. “I feel awesome having Safety Sentry as our title sponsor. They have such a great device, and I am excited to have the chance to market their products. I feel just blessed to be part of this team.”
“We are very proud to be part of such a winning team,” he said. “This partnership allows us the greatest opportunity for product visibility and relates our message of personal safety and protection while towing.
The fans that we will be able to touch are so loyal to the sport, and we want to keep them protected and coming back for years to come as part of our team.”
Safety Sentry Inc. manufactures safety trailer-hitch lock systems designed to prevent trailer detachment in any form, whether by theft or accident while driving. Safety trailer-hitch locks are required in some states due to state-mandated trailer-hitch laws. Safety Sentry Hitch Locks will be available for purchase at all 2011 NHRA Full Throttle Drag Racing Series events. story courtesy of NHRA

Dragbike Live contacted Angie and asked the question many of you have asked us. Angie told us she will in fact be on a Buell and the art work was done while she was out of the country. It is just a rendition of the paint scheme for the 2011 season.
