At a track where she crashed a year earlier
NORWALK, Ohio -- After a first crash, many people agree with
a statement by Junior Dragster driver Monica Roberts from Michigan.
“It’s not that easy to get back on the horse,” Monica said.
Jet Dragster pilot Elaine Larsen documents the process in a Larsen Motorsports video, Episode 8 in the “Playing With Fire” series.
In a previous story on SummitMotorsportsPark.com, Elaine Larsen said she was born to drive Jet Dragsters, which reach speeds of more than 300 mph in a quarter mile.
This video not only proves the statement, but launches further.
Sometimes -- possibly all the time -- following a true calling requires courage, determination and overcoming the odds.
Meet Elaine Larsen and the Larsen Motorsports Team at the Elaine Larsen races against three other Jet Dragster drivers: Jill Canuso and the Queen of Diamonds; Ernie Bogue and the Beast from the East; and Lou Pereira and the Terminator.50th Anniversary Celebration Auto Plus Night Under Fire August 10, 2013 at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio.
Buying tickets in advance is highly recommended.
