“Go ahead.
Compare me to Danica Patrick.

wearing your nuts for a hat.”

Jessi Combs
Pro race driver, TV host, fast chick.
July 27, 1980 – August 27, 2019.
Aged 39 years.

Most recognized for: When Jessi wasn’t co-hosting shows like “Mythbusters,” “Overhaulin’,” “The List,” and “Xtreme 4X4,” she was winning off-road racing titles and setting world land speed records. But “the fastest woman on four wheels” bit the dust while attempting to break her own record… by crashing her jet-engine powered automobile into a dry lake bed. [insert misogynist ‘women-behind-the-wheel’ joke here.]
