When you consider the speed in which Kat Moller travels down the racetrack, you understand why the University of South Florida sophomore is studying to fine-tune her mechanical engineering skills.
Moller pilots jet dragster race cars reaching speeds of 300 mph within a quarter mile stretch. Although she’s new to this type of driving, she has been racing traditional cars for almost 10 years. She grew up watching her father race dragsters and helping him tinker in his Sarasota auto body shop, Corvettes West. Moller says she’s always known that she wanted to drive race cars, fast.
