Who is the Lady Driving the 2,000 MPH Car?

Posted by on January 13th, 2012

Which woman will be the first to hold a major land speed record when she pilots a car that has a top speed of 2,000 miles per hour named Sonic Wind? That’s what Waldo Stakes wants to find out.

He’s the one building the speed demon vehicle which hopes to attain the ridiculous top speed thanks to parts from an X-15 aircraft and fueling systems he scrounged from nuclear missiles. When he breaks the land speed record, Stakes wants it to be done with two very important qualifiers: the driver is American, the driver is a woman.

The record will require the driver get up to Mach 3, which means they will have to take the vehicle to Bolivia, where the Salar de Uyuni salt flats would give them enough room to rumble.
