It may be called a Funny Car, but Alexis DeJoria's ride is serious. She came to Dallas to show off her new wheels, the Patron Tequila Funny Car, before her race at Texas motor Speedway.

She's the daughter of millionaire hair product founder, John Paul DeJoria, of Paul Mitchell. But instead of following in her father's footsteps, she is taking the fast track, literally. The drag racer is beautiful, and clearly has great hair, but more than that, she wants to be taken seriously as a racer and competitor.
