Larsen Jet Girls make FireBall for Charity

Friday, Aug 01 1979

Jet dragster drivers Elaine Larsen and Marisha Falk, from Daytona Florida based Larsen Motorsports, will make a new kind of Fire Ball for them this year without their jet dragsters. 

The dynamic duo has been selected to participate in this year’s Fireball Run Adventure-Rally where America is literally the game board. The event will take them across North America on an eight day adventure through America's frontier covering thousands of miles. An actual trivial pursuit challenge, where America is the game board.

Providing support for Elaine and Marisha are multi-year sponsors of the Larsen Motorsports Jet Racing Teams, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Miller Welding, Simpson Race Products and Carlisle Events. 

The core purpose of the event is to help find lost or missing children. Covering over 2000 miles, the teams will spread awareness and hand out flyers of missing children across America. Specifically, Elaine and Marisha will be racing to help bring home 17 year old Gloria Alvarado, missing from Sanford Florida who was last seen July 30, 2012.

Information about Gloria or any other missing children can be reported to any law enforcement agency or to the National Center For Missing and Exploited Children.

You can follow the teams on as well as on Elaine and Marisha’s Facebook where you can help the girls solve the clues and be a part of their adventure.
