Classroom of the North America Eagle Land Speed Record 

 

In 2013, Jessi Combs became the fastest woman on four wheels with an average speed of 406 miles per hour. Now, she wants to become the fastest woman on earth by breaking Kitty O’Neil’s 1976 land-speed record of 512 mph, a record she set in a three-wheeled vehicle. The current land-speed record of 763 mph was achieved in 1997 by a British team on the silt playa of Nevada’s Black Rock Desert. “They took the record on our soil,” laments North American Eagle team leader Ed Shadle, an Air Force veteran and co-driver of the jet-powered car. “We’re going to bring the record back to North America.” “I’m not afraid of dying,” says Combs. “I don’t want to die, but I’m not afraid of it.”
