In-N-Out’s invisible billionaire burger heiress

Torres is one of almost 90 hidden billionaires discovered by Bloomberg News since the debut of the Bloomberg Billionaires Index in March 2012. Among them: Dirce Camargo, the richest woman in Brazil, and Elaine Marshall, the fourth-richest woman in America.

Like Camargo and Marshall, Torres maintains a low profile. Her most visible presence has been on the drag strip. She competes in the National Hot Rod Association’s Super Gas and Top Sportsman Division 7 categories, alternating between a 1970 Plymouth Barracuda and a 1984 Chevrolet Camaro, according to NHRA results. Her third husband, Val Torres Jr., is also a race- car driver.

    Some of it repeats the Bloomberg story, but lots more Lynsi Torres and In-N-Out info/images can be perused here.

    I think I’d like to try one of those hamburger sandwiches.

    “I am so excited that In-N-Out Burger is back in drag racing,” she said.
