Jessica Combs –[ rise of popular ] Part– II
Let’s continue our topic about Jessica in this we to know what happened and its the honour….
Jessica Combs was about to have a different career when she was offered a full scholarship to pursue interior design, but she decided to decline it for her driving career.
“” I love to drive, build things and go fast… cars are all encompassing.
Jessica was driving her jet powered car on a dry bed lake in Oregon.
The American racing driver has been posthumously awarded the fastest land-speed record by a female, a feat she died trying to achieve. Jessi Combs died in a crash while attempting to break the 40-year old land-speed record in the Alvord Desert, Oregon, on 27 August 2019. Her jet-powered car clocked a record speed of 522.783 mph (841.338 km/ph). Jessica Combs, 39, has shattered the seemingly untouchable previous record that was set by American stunt-woman.
Jessica Comb’s partner, Terry Madden, expressed mixed emotions in a social media post about the record confirmation. Madden wrote that “no record could ever be worth her not being here”. “But it was a goal that she really wanted and as hard as it is for me to even look at the car without crying. I’m so proud of her,” JC partner added.
“She woke up that morning to an alarm saying ‘lets make history’ and we had an absolutely amazing day.”
He and Combs had a “heart to heart” about the run, which was supposed to be her last attempt at the elusive record, Madden wrote. “That was to be the last time she ever got in that car,” Madden wrote. “It has torn me apart that all I had to do was say let’s go and we would have left before that run.” In his social media post, Madden maintained Combs had done everything right. Jesse Comb’s four-wheeled North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger had already made her the fastest woman on four wheels, achieving 398 mph in 2013.
It may seem a little crazy to walk directly into the line of fire…those who are willing, are those who achieve great things. People say I am crazy. I say thank you. Jessica Combs then added a number of hashtags including “fastest woman on earth” and “gottabreak512”. The accompanying picture showed her walking towards a jet-powered car in south-east Oregon. That was the final social message from the woman who would die but get the record she was dying to chase down.
Jesse Combs, 39, celebrated world over as the “fastest woman on four wheels” died in a crash on August 27, 2019 trying to shatter the 512mph mark that was achieved by Kitty O’Neil in 1976, but on a three-wheeled rocket car. Her teammate and boyfriend Terry Madden wrote, “Unfortunately we lost her yesterday in a horrific accident, I was the first one there and trust me we did everything humanly possible to save her,” in a social media post on Aug. 28. Combs had been chronicling her attempt to set a new land-speed record at the time of her last time.
The average of the two runs, 531.889 mph [ one at 515.346 mph and one at 548.432 mph ] was submitted for consideration by Guinness officials, and it isn’t clear how they arrived at the final figure of 522.783 mph for the record.
Jessica Combs was barreling through a dry lake bed in Oregon’s Alvord Desert inside a 56-foot-long, 52,000-horsepower “jet car” when the “horrific accident” happened, her team said. Police officials told at the time that investigators were attempting to recover laptop computers that were on board the high-powered vehicle dubbed the North American Eagle Supersonic Speed Challenger so they could determine what went wrong.
Harney County Sheriff’s Office later said the wheel failure happened when the car was moving at a speed nearing 550 mph. Combs’s cause of death was determined to be “blunt force trauma to the head”, it said. The vehicle burst into flames after the crash. Her deadly crash was “most likely caused from striking an object on the desert.” The car was moving so fast there was no time to recover from any collision.
Jesscia’s family said after the crash. “Surrounded by her family and friends at the time of her passing, Jessi lived fearlessly and her legacy lives on in the countless lives she touched.” She has driven everything from super cars to monster trucks, relics to rally cars, hot rods, two wheels, four wheels and even at times, no wheels. Stunt driving has opened a whole new passion into the arena of possibilities between woman and machine for Jessi.
The speeds achieved by daredevil Jessi Combs leading up to the accident that took her life on August 27, 2019, has been accepted as a new world record by the officials at Guinness World Records.
“Jessica Combs was one of the rare dreamers with the bravery to turn those possibilities into reality, and she left this earth driving faster than any other woman in history,”
