TORONTO, ON // DECEMBER 22, 2016 • Most times, you have to be moving pretty quickly to keep up with Jessi Combs. Known as the ‘Fastest Woman on Four Wheels,’ the California resident has converted her dreams into reality by turning her love of automobiles into an incredible career.
Fortunately for car and racing enthusiasts in attendance on March 11 & 12(2017) at the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo Presented by Mothers, they’ll have no problem catching up with Combs during her time at Toronto’s International Centre.
At Motorama, Jessi will be signing autographs and taking pictures with show-goers, as well as participating in on-stage panel discussions and spending time at the Lincoln Electric booth.
A master automotive fabricator who has won many world-class off-road races, events and championships, Combs has also starred on several popular TV shows, including Overhaulin’, Mythbusters and The List: 1001 Car Things to do Before You Die.
“I’m looking forward to coming to Toronto for the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo,” said Combs, during a recent appearance at the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show in Indianapolis. “I’ve been to Canada several times and the fans there are great. It’s going to be a good time and I hope to see everyone at Motorama.”
Speaking on behalf of the show, co-promoter Greg MacPherson said, “I saw Jessi in action with her fans at SEMA, and I had the pleasure of meeting her at PRI. I know everyone who comes to Motorama will enjoy spending time with her and hearing her talk about all the neat things she’s done during her career.
“Jessi’s gone 477 miles per hour in a jet-powered land-speed racer. She’s beaten ‘the guys’ to win brutal off-road desert races like the ‘King of the Hammers.’ Her fabrication skills and personality have made her a natural for television shows and being an excellent brand ambassador for some of the industry’s biggest companies. Jessi Combs is an inspiration to anyone who ‘dreams big’ and we’re excited that she’s coming to Motorama.”
