I read that Jessi Combs, who was on several car shows including Extreme 4X4, All Girls Garage and also Mythbusters was killed in a land speed record attempt. I always liked her tv persona. She seemed nice and good humored and was by all accounts a real car person, especially in the metal fab\welding area. This land speed stuff is crazy. I'm surprised more people don't die when trying to go 500mph across a dry lake bed.
