Few rider/tuner pairings in the history of the sport have dominated the way Terry Vance and Byron Hines have, harvesting dozens of national championships across multiple categories. From the early ‘70s until Vance retired from riding in 1988, they won 14 national titles, in both Pro Stock and Top Fuel classes, and 24 NHRA national victories. The duo’s popularity was a major reason the NHRA added motorcycle racing to its national championship series. In 1980, they formed Vance & Hines, which they’ve built into one of the world’s largest aftermarket parts suppliers. Their road racing teams have won AMA Supersport and Superbike titles and collected signature victories in the DAYTONA 200 (1990, 1993) and the U.S. round of the 1999 World Superbike Series. More recently, the duo ran the Harley-Davidson® Screamin’ Eagle®/Vance & Hines Pro Stock drag racing team, which has won more races and championships. Vance is listed in the NHRA’s Top 50 Drivers. Vance (1999) and Hines (2014) were inducted into the AMA Hall of Fame.
