    Professional driver and TV host Jessi Combs has died after crashing her jet-powered car while trying to break her own land speed record.

    The 36-year-old was killed in the crash on Tuesday at about 4pm on a dry bed lake in Alvord Desert in Oregon.

    Combs, dubbed the fastest woman on four wheels, was trying to beat her land speed record of 398 miles per hour at the time. The TV personality has held the record since 2013.

    Born in Rapid City, South Dakota, Combs had a lifelong dream to become a race car driver.

    She graduated from WyoTech in Wyoming with a degree in Custom Automotive Fabrication and eventually fell into television.

    She hosted various automotive shows, including Xtreme 4x4, Overhaulin', Truck U, and Two Guys Garage.

    Combs had previously also appeared as a host and builder on Discovery Channel's Mythbusters.

    She knew her stuff. Watched her on All Girls Garage. I'm very sad.

    Yeah, she was a great gal and a true gearhead and racer. It was nice to see a woman crank some wrenches instead of being eye candy like on early Overhaulin’ episodes. I see her a lot on reruns and always kinda hoped I’d bump into her at a Tampa car show. Damn. Such a shame.

    I'm shocked, was a true GearHead, I missed her on All Girls Garage, She was a true race driver and accomplished auto restoration mechanic. RIP Jessi.
