About Alexis DeJoria Alexis DeJoria, daughter of John Paul DeJoria, of Paul Mitchell Systems, and Patrón Tequila, is currently the Top Female Top Alcohol Funny Car Racer. Her team, Stealth Motorsports, operated by Alexis herself, is the only female-owned and operated team. Alexis plans to change from Top Alcohol Funny Car to Nitro Funny Car in the upcoming drag racing season. In addition to being a drag racer and heiress, Alexis is also a mother of one. Rather than take advantage of the cushy life that has been created for her, Alexis' need for adrenaline has kept her from taking over the Paul Mitchell brand. Instead, her need for speed continues to drive her and push her to higher levels in the dangerous, sometimes deadly, male-dominated sport of drag racing.
