    Default RIP Jessi Combs



    Jessi Combs—vehicle builder, racer, fabricator, TV personality, and all-around automotive legend—was killed on Tuesday in a crash while attempting to break her own land-speed record in southeast Oregon. She was 36.

    The crash occurred as Combs was piloting her jet-powered land-speed car on the Alvord Desert, a dry lake bed where several land-speed records have been set. According to local reports, the crash happened shortly after 4pm local time.

    Combs held the title of "fastest woman on four wheels" after setting a record of 398 mph in her jet-powered North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger in 2013. More recently, she had piloted that same car to 483.227 mph in a single shakedown run in October 2018, though that run ended prematurely with mechanical troubles. (Governing bodies require two back-to-back runs in opposite directions to set an official speed record.)

    ...

    Jessi Combs will be remembered as a fearless competitor, a master fabricator, an advocate for women in motorsports and the car community, and a constant positive presence in motorsports and media. Our condolences go out to her family, her friends, her teammates, and her fans worldwide.
    This sucks. She was everywhere that motorsports was, and wasn't just a hot chick posing, she was actually in there getting her hands dirty. This is a big loss, especially for the women in motorsports movement. She went out doing what she loved with a smile.

    RIP.

    Damn, that's tragic. I think they were filming a documentary on her record attempt, too - wonder how that will play out now.

    Yeah this upset me more than I thought.

    She didn’t have to try and be cool, she just was.

    I don't think she was smiling when she went out.

    EDIT - not in a morbid sense but I would like to see a video of the crash, just because I can't imagine the aftermath at that speed.

    Damn!! She was amazing. Not afraid to do anything. Always getting her hands dirty, fabing some incredible stuff, and just being a plane old badass.

    RIP!

    Yeah it's funny sometimes how you don't realize how highly you think of someone until something like this happens.
