Elaine Larsen is a 2-time world champion Jet dragster driver. She’s a woman who has caught ‘on fire’ three times, raced at death defying speeds and found her purpose after crashing into a wall at 280 mph.
Elaine’s racing story starts with a boy, a boy she met when she was 16, a boy who 30 years later is both her husband and business partner.
Growing up a Mennonite did not put Elaine on the jet dragster track but fate had other plans in mind. It was after her husband took her to the races that his love for aviation, jets and electrical re-purposing mixed with her fascination for racing.
Elaine shares the story of her journey from working for 4 dollars an hour with a mom and pop, race car startup on the side to founding a full fledged racing company that finances building innovative jet dragsters and the Larsen Motorsports team.
It’s not often we have someone with the guts to move at 5 g’s on our show and we are thrilled to present this rockin’ woman’s story of going bigger, faster and safer in the face of nearly losing it all.
This episode will make your heart beat faster and it will leave you dreaming BIGGER than before.
