About The Speaker - Elaine Larsen

head shot

With over 20 years of drag racing experience, Elaine Larsen has found her home behind the wheel of her jet dragsters. Elaine is a 2X World Champion and with her husband, Chris, their son, Andrew, and dog, Nitro, she lives her life at full throttle. Mentoring the next generation of High-Performance Vehicles Specialist is what fuels Elaine today. Giving women a chance behind the wheel or hands-on opportunities in this male-dominated industry is her focus for 2021 and beyond.

Elaine is the creator of four comic books, "Blaze." These books were inspired by real-life experiences and adapted to high STEAM education and embedded curricula for each of the corresponding comics.

"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 seriously, not only for the little girls but to all ladies out there never to give up and always give 100%.
