    Post RIP Jessi Combs

    Jessi Combs, race car driver and TV host, dies in jet-car crash at age 39 | Fox News

    My buddy dropped a txt to me this morning about this and I was floored! I've been watching her over the years on the various channels the original Speed Vision has been called and really respected her. This was a woman who REALLY was a gearhead, a car guy if you will. When you'd watch the show she had dirt under her nails and really was just one of the guys and carried herself with the utmost class. Then I remember her doing an episode of her doing this:

    The List #0011: Drive the Tail of the Dragon | Autoblog

    While searching for this episode on this show I was amazed on what she did just on THIS series! I know she was all about empowering woman and tip of the cap for her doing that because in the car world, she was very well respected as she should've been quite honestly! I say this about her, she left NOTHING on the table, RIP Jessi!

    Holy Hell.

    This is the first I have heard of this awful news.

    Damn it. Such a cool person taken away.

    I hope her family can take comfort in knowing her talents entertained and made many people happy.

    What a complete bummer. :/
    It is no coincidence that man's best friend cannot talk.

    What a Lady:
    a true gearhead; fearless;
    and totally badass...

    Yet, still: what a Lady.
    She’ll be sorely missed.

    At least maybe her family can find a little comfort in that she went out doing what she absolutely loved doing. She was one of the people who help inspire the young ladies that are coming up in the different automotive sports. And probably some of the young men also.

    Prayers and thoughts are with her family. RIP!

    Couldn't believe it when I heard. She always had my utmost respect as someone who was hands on and not just another pretty face host.

    Jessi you will truly be missed! Thoughts and prayer to her family and friends. RIP
