When people started talking about Alexis DeJoria and her NHRA Mello Yello Funny Car team they often connected her to her celebrity husband Jesse James or her father John Paul DeJoria, who Forbes magazine has ranked No. 568 on its 2014 list of the world’s billionaires, with a net worth estimated at $3.1 billion. But now Alexis is making her own name winning three events last year in Phoenix, Las Vegas 1 and Indianapolis. She was the first female Funny Car driver to post a three-second run last year in Pomona. DeJoria no longer needs help in the introduction department.
