https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/a28843412/jessi-combs-killed-in-land-speed-record-crash/ Combs was piloting a 52,000hp jet car on the Alvord Desert in Oregon when it crashed. She was just 36 and a certified badass when it came to motorsports. I'm definitely shocked over this, but I'm pretty sad too. I had the opportunity to meet Jessi at last year's SEMA show. There really wasn't much of a line to see her, so I figured I get a quick photo with her. We ended up talking for a bit about Utah, the stupid drinking laws here, and about trails in Moab until someone else showed up about 10 minutes later. Compared to some of the other celebrities I met there, she seemed to be the only one who really took the time with her fans and was really genuine.
