I saw that on facebook this morning. Definitely one of my favorite automotive personalities. I remember seeing her for the first time on Xtreme Offroad or whatever it was called on Powerblock TV or whatever it was called back several years ago. It was cool to see a woman that was both knowledgeable and skilled/talented be put on a stage of that size. RIP

Yeah, very sad..used to watch her on TV back years ago.

The extreme progression of the direction of things is bringing additional risk. She had a record of around 400mph and had gone right at 500 already in a single pass. They were trying for 619mph when it went bad.

Rest in Peace Jessi

Yeah, that sucked reading about it yesterday. Really enjoyed her on TV and just following what all she did in motorsports. We lost a good one yesterday for sure. RIP Jessi.
