Accident and Injuries

Even though Lizzy Musi is a professional drag racer and a star of the reality show Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings, she has also encountered some serious challenges and dangers on the track. She has been involved in several crashes that have left her and her fans worried about her health and safety.

In April of 2012 Lizzy had a high speed car crash in third round qualification of American Drag Racing League event in Bristol, Tenn.  She was riding 1968 Camaro which spun out of control and caused it to drift for a while. It followed by hitting the side wall; the air beneath was enough to generate lift to the top of the wall and causing spin before throwing on the other side. Although the accident was horrible, she came out uninjured.

In March of 2015, she faced another high-speed crash in the opening round of Pro Nitrous qualifying for the season-opening PDRA Texas Nationals at the Texas Motorplex outside Dallas.  She was up against veteran Ron Muenks, during the race she could not control her high-speed car causing a sharp turn and collision with Muenks car. Before the impact, both were able to open the parachute and slow the car’s velocity. Besides a few damages to the car, both left without injury.

Yet again she suffered an accident, this time with “The Shocker,” famed car of her ex-boyfriend Kye Kelley. In June 2018 she was preparing the vehicle for discovery channel TV show Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings opening episode in Topeka, Kansas when she struck the retaining wall, causing extensive damage to the car. Again she came out fine.

In July 2021, she was at Darlington Dragway in South Carolina, in her third race with Bonnie. She was competing against Brandon James when she got loose and slammed into the guardrail. The collision left her car and body bruised, but she was able to walk away from it. She was taken to the hospital for a check-up and returned to the track later that day. To her surprise, Kye Kelley proposed to her and she said yes.

On 10th September, 2022, her car had crashed at Tucson Dragway in Arizona. Lizzy was racing against Ryan Martin in her 1969 Chevrolet Camaro, nicknamed “Bonnie”. She was ahead of Ryan and about to win the race when she lost control of her car and hit the barrier on the driver’s side. She then crossed over to the other lane and hit the opposite barrier on the passenger side. The impact was so strong that it damaged both sides of her car and caused a fire to break out. Lizzy managed to get out of the car on her own and was taken to the hospital for observation. She was later released with no major injuries, thanks to the safety equipment and the design of her car.

Personal Life

Lizzy’s personal life information leaves us with mostly a blurry picture of her love life. She dated a couple of fellow racers but has not bothered to associate with the person by giving the names publicly. She shared boyfriend/girlfriend relationship with street racer and TV show “Street Outlaws” star Kye Kelley in April of 2017.

While there are no records of her marriage or children, Lizzy’s ex-boyfriend  Kye was previously married. He was married to Allisa Mote from 2015 to 2017. In the period he had a daughter Kenadeigh Alexa Kelley with her. Soon after divorce, he began dating Lizzy Musi. Lizzy and Kye started their relationship in 2017 and have been open vocal about their relationship for each other on social media and on the show. They share a common passion for racing and cars, and often compete against each other on the track. 

Lizzy and Kye Kelley got engaged in July 2021, when he proposed to Lizzy at South Carolina’s Darlington Dragway while filming an episode of their show. The proposal came on the same day that Lizzy survived a car accident while racing, which made it even more special and emotional.

However, their relationship has not been without challenges and controversies. In early July 2023, rumors started circulating that they had broken up, but neither of them confirmed or denied it. Later that month, Lizzy posted a long message on her Facebook account, announcing that they were no longer together. She also revealed that she was diagnosed with stage four breast cancer in April 2023, and that she was undergoing treatment.
