Lizzy's father, Pat Musi, is renowned in the racing world.

According to a feature from Drag Illustrated, Pat Musi got his start in the drag racing world right out of high school in the 1970s when he opened his own shop. Now, over 50 years later, Pat's Speed Shop has evolved into Pat Musi Racing Engines, a world-class business that sells winning engines to some of the top Pro Mod racers in the business.

"I started driving when I was 20-21 years old, and the guys I read about — Bill Jenkins, Ronnie Sox, Bob Glidden, Lee Shepherd — I immediately got involved match racing them," Pat told Drag Illustrated. "It was a cool deal to be able to race those guys and outrun them sometimes. I had the work ethic to do well and I was willing to put in the time.” During his racing career, Pat has won several victories and championships.

It's evident that Pat clearly passed down his racing prowess, as well as his passion and work ethic, to his two daughters. Lizzy, of course, was a mainstay on the popular reality series Street Outlaws, and her sister, Tricia, is also involved in the racing scene.
