Lizzy Musi Unhurt In Testing Incident With Kye Kelley’s ‘Shocker’

Second-generation racer Lizzy Musi was uninjured in an on-track incident Thursday evening when she lost control of Kye Kelley’s famed ‘Shocker’ Chevrolet Camaro at the Northstar Dragway in Denton, Texas.

Lizzy, the daughter of iconic engine builder and champion driver Pat Musi, was testing Kelley’s machine in preparation for this weekend’s Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings season opener in Topeka, Kansas when she struck the retaining wall, causing extensive damage to the familiar black, nitrous oxide-assisted Camaro.

Said Kelley following the incident:

Lizzy is fine besides her pride and feelings, which is most important. The Shocker, on the other hand, is hurt pretty bad and some way, somehow I’ll find the funds to get it fixed so we can continue to make history as a drag racing couple doing what we love to do. To make a long story short, we replaced the steering wheel yesterday because we noticed a crack in it and with that being said the transbrake button was in a different location. My reverse lights are wired to come on when my transbrake is engaged. About 1.8-seconds into the run, right before the shift change she accidentally bumped the button, locked the transmission up and the car immediately slid left and hit the wall. 

It’s a sad day for us because that car is a huge part of our life, just tough luck.

Kelley will compete at the Heartland Motorsports Park this weekend wheeling the all-new ‘Aftershock’, a late-model, fifth-generation Camaro that made its public debut last fall. He indicated that if all falls into place, Lizzy and the Shocker may return as soon as the next stop on the No Prep Kings tour in Memphis in mid-July. Lizzy will climb back behind the wheel of her Pro Nitrous machine next weekend at the PDRA’s Firecracker Nationals in Richmond, Virginia.
