A teen drag racer dies at almost 300 mph!
We all know that teens are inloved with speed. Life is always about speed, but death also? In this case it seems yes! A 17 years-old died at the Toronto Motorsport Park track after she hit a wall in her jet-propelled dragster at more than 480 km/h (arround 300mph!!!).
"She was not competing today, she was performing for the crowd," OPP spokesman Const. Mark Foster said. from the park in Cayuga, south of Hamilton.
Kendall Hebert was one of several members of the Gladiator Racing Team and was on her way to becoming a competitive racer once she turned 18, Foster said.
Hebert had just completed a quarter-mile run down the straight track at speeds in excess of 480 km/h yesterday at 3:20 p.m. when, "for unknown reasons, she hit the wall," Foster said.
Hebert’s jet-powered dragster flew over the track’s concrete barrier and rolled several times, throwing the teen clear.
