    Yesterday, while attempting to beat her own land speed record, the 52,000 horsepower jet-powered car driven by racer, fabricator, and television personality Jessi Combs crashed in the Alvord Desert in Oregon, killing her, as local news reports. Combs was 36 years old and held the title of “fastest woman on four wheels” after breaking 398 mph in that same North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger in 2013.

    What a shame, she was terrific.

    There is some solace in knowing she died doing what she loved in life.

    A woman who not only talked the talk, but walked the walk.

    Jessi rode the Gambler 100 mini bike enduro in Oregon last year. She completed the event by herself. A friend and his boys got pictures with her. I never saw her there, I would've liked a pic with her.
