I heard about this on the way into work this morning. Very sad. I meet here at the off road show once. I believe Ted (tbars) knew her well too.

Aw man, this is a terrible loss. She was an inspiration in more ways than one--

edit. Now that I have pondered, I'm kinda inspired to get into a 400 mph car. I don't care if it'll go straight as long as it hits 400 MPH because I want to die like that too.

I was deeply saddened by this. Such a great human being taken too soon.

She knew the risks, and chose to push the boundaries, but she did these things for more than herself. She was determined to raise the bar for women, and inspire them to achieve greatness. Truly a sad loss for us all.

That's better than what I thought. In one of the interviews I saw where she says on a previous run, there was a brake malfunction and she was watching the bushes getting closer and closer. I was afraid it was like that and she had some time where she knew she was done for. I guess at those speeds there is only fractions of seconds.

What a crazy, hot, funny, smart and confident babe. What a shame.
