She’s the fastest woman on a motorcycle and she’s not stopping there.  CHASING SPEED takes viewers into the adrenaline packed world of legendary female motorcycle racer, Leslie Porterfield . This one-hour special profiles her life on and off the track as she looks to break two racing world records. 

We first meet Leslie in Dallas, where she is the owner of High Five Cycles, a booming shop home to a steadfast crew that offer expert advice in motorcycle racing techniques. From here, we hit the legendary Bonneville Salt Flats - the place where speed records become reality.  As she splits time between work and her pursuing racing dreams, CHASING SPEED WITH LESLIE PORTERFIELD chronicles the year long preparations to what hopes to become her record breaking ride. Will Leslie defeat her decade-long quest to take a stock 1000cc production bike over 200 mph?

CHASING SPEED WITH LESLIE PORTERFIELD premieres  April 1st at 10:00PM (ET/PT) only on Velocity.
