Lizzy Musi Takes Wild Ride at Bristol

Damn she's hot!!!! Turn your attention to Bristol (Tenn.) Dragway, where 21-year-old Lizzy Musi experienced an unfortunate (and literal) turn of events Friday in qualifying at the American Drag Racing League event. The 1968 Camaro driven by Musi, the daughter of well-known drag racer Pat Musi (a former winner in NHRA events and a street-car champion), spun out in the third round of Top Sportsman qualifying and not only took out her car but a stationary camera along the way. "The air caught the wing and just brought the car up. It's pretty crazy to watch," Lizzy Musi told the Bristol Herald-Courier on Saturday. Josh Hachat, director of media and communications for the series, said cameraman Grinner Hester narrowly avoided the melee, jumping over the divider wall and onto the drag strip as Musi's car tumbled his way. Musi, in her first year of racing, walked away unscathed. The camera? Not so much. "God was with me during that run," Musi told the Herald-Courier. "I never got out of a car so quick in my life, and all the officials did a great job making sure I was OK."
