  Chris & Elaine Larsen


CEO & Co-Owner

Chris Larsen

President & Co-Owner

Elaine Larsen

        Chris and Elaine Larsen are high school sweethearts who have been married for over 35 years. They share a passion for motorsports. Originally from Northern Michigan, they moved to Florida to pursue their jet racing dreams.

        Chris has an Airframe and Power Plant degree and is an FAA-licensed pilot. Elaine grew up as a Mennonite, instilling strong family values that have transitioned well into the racing community.

        Growing up, Chris was heavily engaged in the motorsports world. Introducing Elaine to racing was easy. Elaine, a high-energy woman, was immediately hooked on everything racing had to offer. Chris and Elaine knew they wanted to do more with their love for motorsports, and the best way to do that was together. Chris asked Elaine to be his driver while he worked on the racing vehicles.

        When Chris decided to merge his love for aircraft and racing, he found that jet cars were the perfect fit for the Larsens. Knowing that this was a new and exciting endeavor, Elaine hopped into the driver's seat of these jet-powered beasts. Although the road was uncertain and sometimes difficult, they persevered and succeeded.

        Chris and Elaine have a son named Andrew Larsen, who has followed in his father's footsteps by earning an Airframe and Power Plant degree. The Larsen family travels across North America to various drag racing and sponsor events throughout the year.

        Larsen Motorsports is one of the largest turbine-powered motorsports drag racing companies in the world. Two world championships, a few bad days at the track, and adventures to last a lifetime have defined the Larsens' careers.

        Since the creation of Larsen Motorsports, the company has expanded its mission. Larsen Motorsports has evolved from purely a race team into a high-performance vehicle development and research center for the next generation of specialists. Chris and Elaine work with high school and college students seeking hands-on learning opportunities on Florida's Space Coast. Inspiring and educating students comes naturally to both Chris and Elaine.

        As their dreams continue to grow and develop, one thing is certain: the Larsens have created a company to be proud of.
