Biography

Elaine Larsen, a 2x world champion in jet drag racing, has 21 years of experience in the sport. The future holds limitless possibilities as she sets her sights on achieving even greater accomplishments. Elaine's dedication and drive ensure that her best days are still ahead.
Married to her high school sweetheart, Chris, and a proud mother of her son Andrew, Elaine embraces the philosophy of "Live Fast and Play Hard." She fearlessly confronts challenges, having entered the racing world without a background in the sport. As a female in a male-dominated field, Elaine remains undeterred, "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.
In addition to her racing accomplishments, Elaine is a dedicated advocate for inspiring the new generation in STEAM careers. She took the initiative to establish Blazing Trails, a 501(c)3 educational outreach program, with the aim of guiding, inspiring, and supporting students in pursuing careers in STEAM fields. At 56 years old, Elaine takes pride in her achievements and the impact she has made in the racing and education communities. As the sole testing driver for Larsen Motorsports, she contributes to pushing the boundaries of high-performance vehicles through cutting-edge research and innovation in safety, aerodynamics, and materials.
