Street Outlaws: No Prep Kings star Lizzy Musi has been open about her breast cancer journey since she was diagnosed in 2023. After undergoing various treatments in the United States, Lizzy announced that her recent final-round NPK appearance at Empire Dragway will be her last for at least the next few events, revealing she will be traveling to Germany for a special cancer treatment.

“I’ve kind of tried everything here [in the U.S.], and I’ve researched the doctor and treatment in Germany that can isolate my liver and treat it,” said Lizzy.

A little over a year ago, Musi shared her diagnosis of triple-negative stage 4 breast cancer, which had spread to her lymph nodes and liver.

Lizzy’s father, renowned engine builder Pat Musi, also shared his thoughts on his daughter’s next steps.

“The medical system in this country just isn’t what it is in Europe,” said Pat. “Lizzy did all the research on this doctor and the treatment, and he reassured her that he could help.  They’re way advanced from where we are, and they don’t have all these FDA regulations.”

Musi has remained positive and upbeat throughout her treatment and has repeatedly shared that drag racing has provided an outlet for her and even a distraction. 

“This hasn’t put me down,” reassured Lizzy. “I still have the fire in me. I can still do what I do, and it hasn’t changed. I have such a huge support system that keeps me going. My family has been so supportive. It’s incredible, and I’m so thankful for that.”

Before making it to the final round at Empire Dragway, Lizzy raced Paige Coughlin. After pulling into the water box, “Bonnie 2.0,” Lizzy’s nitrous-assisted ’69 Camaro, has issues. Coughlin, seeing the problems they were having, made the decision to allow Musi and her team extra time to diagnose and fix the problem. 

“I want to give a shout-out to Troy Coughlin,” said Pat. “I’ve known him for years, raced with him, raced against him – he raced me, I raced him – but the sportsmanship they showed was beyond incomparable. But like Troy said, ‘We came here to race; we wanna race.’’”

Lizzy defeated Paige and then runnered-up at the event, landing herself second in the points to leave on a high note as she prepares for her trip to Germany. She will be accompanied by her mom when she departs on May 26th.

Lastly, Pat acknowledged that many people are interested in helping Lizzy and can do so by reaching out directly to him, Musi Racing, or his brother, Ralph. He also cautioned that there are scams and imposter accounts on social media.
