Imagine almost dying in a race car crash, and then after recovery continuing to race. That's what Harli White did.

White said, if you take racing away from her, you might as well let her die.

In 2008, White's race car burst into flames after she crashed. White suffered third degree burns over 45 percent of her body and spent 21 days in Shriner’s Hospital in Galveston, Texas.

A year later, White was back at it, and in 2013 she won the Oil Capital Racing Series season championship.

White's story will be told on SportsCenter all day Sunday starting at 9:00 a.m.
