Race car driver Jessi Combs, who earned the title of the "fastest woman on four wheels" after she set a record with a jet-powered car, has died. She crashed the vehicle, officials said, while trying to beat a land speed record.
Combs died Tuesday in Alvord Desert in southeast Oregon, the Harney County Sheriff's Office said. She was 39.
"She was a brilliant & to[p]-notch builder, engineer, driver, fabricator, and science communicator, & strove everyday to encourage others by her prodigious example," said Adam Savage, former co-host of the TV show "Mythbusters."

Damn.
I always liked her and enjoyed her stint on Myth Busters a lot. She definitely had "the right stuff". :cry: :(

I was really saddened by this news. (I’m not normally all that effected when people I don’t know pass away but she was different)

She was an amazing person.
That was a bummer to read this morning.
