Born January 1, 1991, Lizzy was born the daughter of doorslammer legend and engine builder extraordinaire Pat Musi. As the daughter of Pat Musi, Lizzy Musi grew up at the drag strip. After working her way up through the ranks, 2013 saw the second-generation driver enjoy her finest season yet as a frontrunner in ADRL Top Sportsman competition. 2014 promises much bigger things for Lizzy Musi. With backing from longtime Musi Racing supporters Edelbrock, Lucas Oil, and Frank Brandao, she will make her Pro Modified racing debut behind the wheel of the 2009 Dodge Stratus formerly campaigned by her father. The car has been updated with the latest components and technology, not to mention an all-new Musi Racing Engines 903 EFI powerplant. “I’m ready to make the transition to Pro Mod,” Lizzy Musi said confidently. “The last couple years in Top Sportsman have been great and I’ve learned a lot, but it’s time to take the next step in my racing career. I’ve got the best teacher I could ask for in my dad, and the support of a great team and sponsors.” Musi will ease into the much quicker car, focusing primarily on eighth-mile competition after getting comfortable in preseason testing. “It’s a big jump from low four-second elapsed times to the 3.80-second range at close to 200 MPH,” said Musi. “We’re going to do it right and take it one step at a time.”

Adding to the excitement leading up to her debut season, Lizzy Musi will headline Drag Illustrated Magazine’s annual Hottest Women in Drag Racing special issue. Focusing on the women in drag racing that are creating the most impact with their success on and off the track, the popular issue of the world-renowned magazine will feature Musi on the cover and contain an in-depth feature story about her. Look for it online and in mailboxes in February.

“Being featured on the cover of Drag Illustrated is such an honor. It’s a great publication that goes beyond what you’d expect from a drag racing magazine, and really gives an indepth look at the people of the sport,” Musi said. “Now I’ve just got to back up all the excitement with my performance on the track in 2014.” If past success is an indicator of future performance, Lizzy Musi will have no trouble doing just that.

Career:

In 2014, The gorgeous 23-year-old Lizzy, was certainly impressive in her rookie season in the Professional Drag Racing Association (1/8 mile). Her performance July 25-26 at Virginia Motorplex was especially memorable. She won the event. While qualifying Lizzy had a record run of 3.740 setting Pro Nitrous-record. The eighth-mile run was also the quickest-ever on American soil by a doorslammer not utilizing a supercharged engine. Lizzy ended third in the 2014 PDRA points in Pro Nitrous.

After a historic rookie season behind the wheel of Frank Brandao’s 2010 Dodge Stratus, PDRA Pro Nitrous, phenom Lizzy Musi plans to put the class on notice next season when she debuts a brand new 2015 Dodge Dart built by Jerry Bickel Race Cars.
