    She was pretty with a nice smile and she could really weld. Just a nice personality to watch on TV.

    I just saw a piece they did on her ramping up to the attempt. She definitely knew the risks. Sucks she passed, but it's cool she went out doing something she enjoyed, not a lot of people get that.

    I, too, liked watching her on the car TV shows. From what I read, it seemed liked dangerous rides, so I guess I'm not surprised. Way too young. RIP.

    This was her record setting run in 2013 .... 394mph average with a top speed of 440mph

    At 4 min into the video you'll see her give a thumbs up to the Camera with a huge smile !!!!

    I found her extremely irritating whatever tv show she was on.
    Though life is short and when it’s cut even shorter it’s sad.
