What makes Jackie Braasch famous?
Jackie Braasch is a 29-year-old drag racer and member of Car Chix, which is the leading Motorsports Organization for Women. The young motorsport competitor landed a top 12 spot at the finals of the Car Chix Women of Motorsports contest in 2014.
Braasch became even more popular in 2017 when she and the then-married Street Outlaws star Justin Shearer, better known to fans of the show as “Big Chief,” began an affair.
At the time, Shearer was still married to Allicia Shearer, so there was quite a lot of controversy about his extramarital and very public affair with the young and beautiful Jackie Braasch.
Jackie Braasch was born on July 4th, 1990, in Joliet, Illinois. While she prefers to keep her family background pretty much under wraps, it is known that her father used to own a garage and was a huge drag car fan. This is where Braasch and her sister Erin got their early love for fast cars and racing. The sisters used to accompany their dad at the races and helped him out in his garage.
The young Jackie was only 8 years of age when she entered her first competition for junior dragster racers.
He has helped her father work on race cars since her pre-school years and is a skilled mechanic as well as a racer.
Her dragster life
Jackie Braasch has been lucky enough to be able to follow her dream and grow a career in motorsports from an early age.
She regularly won races in her Junior Dragster Division competitions. She also has competed at the “Route 66 Raceway” multiple times too.
When she turned 17, Jackie Braasch entered the full-size dragster races and became one of the best racers in the Car Chix Women of Motorsports Contest in 2014, when she ended up in the top 12 from all 398 competitors.
She was featured as Miss May in the Car Chix Calendar for 2015.
Today, Braasch is an active racer and participant in the Rocket Brand Fuel Bracket Series and the SuperPro.
She races a Spitzer Dragster with a 510ci Big Block Chevy.
Her controversial affair with The Big Chief
Braasch reportedly starting seeing the famous “Street Outlaws” star and TV reality personality Justin Shearer back in 2017 when he was still married to his ex-wife.
The social media lashed out at the unfaithful star, and his alleged new love interest, and in 2017, Big Chief announced that he and former wife Allicia are divorcing.
Shearer has maintained that he has never been unfaithful to his ex-wife while they were still officially married.
Today, Jackie and Justin are still in a relationship but have not gotten married yet.
The Big Chief has two kids from his previous relationship with Allicia, named Covil and Corbin. The couple had been married since 2006 after they met while working at a gas station when they were still teenagers.
Her net worth
Jackie Braasch has managed to accumulate a net worth of over $1 million from her successful racing career, as well as from her other job as a pre-school teacher.
Her fame has grown not only from her successes on the racing track but from her relationship with Big Chief.
