D.R.A.W. – Fast Help for Fast Friends
The Drag Racing Association of Women (DRAW) is a non-profit organization that provides financial and emotional support to qualified individuals involved in drag racing accidents at a track. From 1985 through 2014, DRAW has helped 799 racing families and provided a total of $4,055,442 in financial assistance.
A year ago, after Angelle suffered a season-ending injury to her achilles tendon, D.R.A.W. was able to give her assistance financially to help her and her family through the experience.
Sampey donated the helmet worn in Pro Stock Motorcycle competition all season long in 2015 to the organization for a future fundraising auction. As she says today “they truly are, Fast Help For The Fast Friends.”
