Alexis DeJoria is an American drag racer who drives funny cars in the events organised by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA). She is the daughter of haircare and alcohol mogul John Paul DeJoria. An enterprising individual even in the early years of her youth, she began to work for her family company right out of college. For the next four years, she held jobs at every department imaginable, from public relation to research and development to art. But she always nurtured a deep passion for cars and that came to fruition in 2005 when she started competing in the Super Gas category for NHRA. She drove a rear engine Super Comp dragster after this, and then a Top Alcohol Funny Car (TAFC), before finally moving to a Funny Car in 2011. She is part of the legendary team Kalitta Motorsports, and her father’s tequila brand Patrón Spirits Company is her biggest sponsor. Driving a 10,000-horsepower Toyota Camry Funny Car, she has become one of the top ten drivers contending in the 24-race NHRA Mello Yello Drag Racing Series.
