With over 20 years of drag racing experience, Elaine Larsen has found her home behind the wheel of her jet dragsters. She met and married her high school sweetheart, Chris. With their son Andrew and dog Nitro, Elaine lives her life all out. Her motto is Live Fast and Play Hard. She definitely practices what she preaches. Never one to back down from a challenge, Elaine faces every new obstacle head on. Not coming from a racing background, Elaine headed into uncharted territory and never looked back. She never let being a female in a male dominated world affect her in anyway. "Drag Racing is the equalizer, on any given day, I have the same chance as anyone to win, it just has to be my day!!" says Elaine. Being a strong positive female role model is a job Elaine takes very serious, not only to the little girls, but to all ladies out there to never give up and always give 100%. Elaine is 54 and proud of where she is in her life. Every night before she goes to bed she knows that she had the Guts to go for the Glory!!!
