Who is Lizzy Musi from 'Street Outlaws'?
The Street Outlaws star is the daughter of Pat Musi, who owns Pat Musi Racing Engines in Mooresville, N.C. She began racing at the age of 8, and she took a break when she was a teenager.
Her sister, Tricia Musi, is also a racer, and she is a Nitrous Pro Street World Champion.
Lizzy made her Pro Nitrous debut in 2014 behind the wheel of King Kong 5, which is a 2009 Dodge Stratus.
She appeared as herself in the 2015 street racing film, Adrenaline, which is about a driver who gets paralyzed following a serious accident. The film also starred Charlene Amoia and Cameron Arnett, and was released through on demand services.
She was the first woman to win in Pro Nitrous, and she set a speed record for the class at 209.23 miles per hour. In October of 2019, she set another record at the Professional Drag Racers Association Fall Nationals in Darlington, S.C., when she hit 208.62 miles per hour in 3.615 seconds in the King Kong 7 Dodge Dart.
In 2018, Lizzy got in an accident while testing out The Shocker (a Camaro), and she crashed into a wall. She was not injured during the ordeal, but the hood of the car was severely damaged.
Lizzy is sponsored by Edelbrock, a manufacturing company that specializes in car and motorcycle parts.
When she's not racing, Lizzy has showcased her passion for fitness, fashion, and hunting.
Does Lizzy Musi have a boyfriend? Who is she dating?
The expert driver has been in a relationship with Kye Kelley since 2017. On July 31, 2021, Kye popped the question, and they're still currently engaged to be married.
Interestingly, their engagement happened on the same day she crashed during the first round of the Darlington Dragway No Prep Kings. Lizzy took to Instagram to reflect on the accident and the unexpected happy ending.
"Towards the end of the night he surprised me with 'THE QUESTION,'" she wrote. "I didn’t know how to feel. I was so excited and emotional all at the same time. My answer to him was 'YES!' I want to marry my best friend! 💍He sure made up for the day I had, I love you."
The pair first met at a PDRA exhibition race. Kye had been a customer at Pat Musi's shop, and the Musi patriarch introduced the two.
"To be honest with you, I had never heard of him; I had never watched [Street Outlaws]!" Lizzy said, per Dragzine.com "My dad introduced me to him, and we just became friends. He was pretty down-to-earth, seemed pretty cool, and it just started from there."
Kye has been a cast member on Street Outlaws since 2016, and he was married before he began dating Lizzy. He and ex-wife Alisa Mote tied the knot in 2015, and they split two years later. They share a daughter named Kenadeigh Alexa Kelley together, and the street racer also has another daughter from a previous relationship.
