The Harley-Davidson Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines team is led by Vance & Hines Motorsports owners Byron Hines and Terry Vance. Matt Hines, the older son of Byron and a three-time (1997-99) NHRA champion rider, brings his competition experience to his role as crew chief of the Screamin’ Eagle/Vance & Hines team.
