Last Year’s Nitro Jam Jet Dragster Champion At It Again
MELBOURNE, FLA. — 2014 Nitro Jam Jet Dragster champion Elaine Larsen defeated Larsen Motorsports colleague Katarina Moller in the finals of the 2015 Good Vibrations Nitro Jam Southwestern Nationals presented by Budweiser, the inaugural event of the Internatonal Hot Rod Associaton’s 2015 Nitro Jam series.
The race was held at Southwestern International Raceway in Tucson, Ariz.
Larsen won with a time of 5.73 seconds at 281.77 mph. Moller was at 5.85 seconds at 273.50 mph.
Also competing for Larsen Motorsports were Shea Holbrook, driving the recently unveiled Florida Institute of Technology dragster, and Marisha Falk.
Larsen told Racing News that after her quick start, a confident Moller was closing the gap. But it wasn’t to be.
“It’s girl power, baby,” Larsen said.
The next scheduled event is the IHRA Nitro Jam Mardi Gras Nationals on March 13-14 at State Capitol Raceway in Port Allen, La.
