Damn. Tempt fate enough...it will eventually win.

At least she went out in the most epic way possible.

36 is way too young to go.

RIP Jessi

Condolences to her Family, Friends, Fans and Teammates!


At 483 MPH on 4 wheels fastest female race car driver! Makes Nascar drivers look like chickens. She was trying to go 512 MPH; there would not be much left to her; I'm glad I didn't have to pick up the bits and pieces it must have been a mess!. So sad!

Ok, going from her personal best of 398 MPH +/- to 613 MPH, is a recipe for disaster. Good on her for living her dream, but temper the dreams with a dose of reality, speed and inexperience kills. Why should there be a woman's category for rocket powered land speed records ?

They cut the wings off a jet and put wheels on it.

That wouldn't be my first choice for attempting a land speed record.

This is sad. I remember her from that 4x4 show. She'd gotten busted up "badly" in an accident and still returned.

Son of a b***h...
