Drag racer dies in accident at Sebring

Sebring International Raceway has confirmed that jet dragster driver Katarina Moller has died as a result of an accident on Thursday night.

The 24-year-old from Sarasota, FL., was making her first exhibition run of the evening in a jet dragster during Sebring’s regular drag racing event.

The cause of the crash is being investigated by the Highland County Sheriff’s Office, and investigators are asking any spectators who recorded Moller’s run to call the Criminal Investigation Unit at 863-402-7250.

A statement from Sebring International Raceway said Moller, who went by the nickname Kat, was a regular and very popular racer at local short tracks and a driver for Larsen Motorsports in the jet dragster. She was in her fifth season with Larsen.

Chris Larsen, CEO of Larsen Motorsports, wrote on the team's website: “Kat has been part of our racing family for 5 years and we cannot begin to express our sorrow. Your prayers in this very difficult time are appreciated."

“We knew Kat well and were big fans of her personality and her driving skill,” said Wayne Estes, president and general manager of the track. “Sebring International Raceway and the entire racing community are heartbroken.”
