Drag racer Katarina Moller died on Thursday night at Sebring International Raceway in Sebring, Florida. She was 24.
She died due to an accident during an exhibition pass in a jet dragster. It happened during her first pass in the car.
Moller was competing in a regular drag racing event.
The authorities are investigating her death. The Highland County Sheriff’s Office is overseeing the investigation.
They are requesting anyone, who witnesses the incident, with or without video, to contact the Criminal Investigation Unit at 863-402-7250.
She competed for Larsen Motorsports. This was her fifth season with the team.
“We knew Kat well and were big fans of her personality and her driving skill,” said Wayne Estes, president, and general manager of Sebring International Raceway. “Sebring International Raceway and the entire racing community are heartbroken.”
Moller just turned 24 earlier this year on June 15th. She was also a graduate student at Florida Tech, which is also a sponsor of Larsen Motorsports.
She was born in Sarasota, Florida and had one brother named Thomas, who raced at Sebring International Raceway, according to her Facebook page. Her father also raced at the facility, as well.
The young driver made her debut in 2014 piloting the Matrix System Jet Dragster. She began racing as an 11-year-old in Jr. Dragster.
“We cannot begin to express our sorrow,” Larsen Motorsports CEO Chris Larsen said. “Your prayers in this very difficult time are appreciated.”
