Pro Mod Madness! Our Fuel Curve Top 10 List, #8 Lizzy Musi

Editor’s Note. This is a ten-part series we will run once per week introducing the Top 10 Pro Mod race cars in our opinion. Series author Steven Bunker knows a thing or two about drag racing, especially Pro Mods. His grandfather Bob Bunker was one of the premier racers in supercharged, steel-bodied, quarter mile door cars which were the precursor to the class. Check back each week as Steven counts ‘em down!

#8 – Lizzy Mussi

Fuel Curve Countdown. The Nation’s Top 10 Pro Mod, Lizzy MusiAs the only female to make our list, 25-year-old Pro Mod drag racer Lizzy Musi has door slammer blood in her veins. Her father Pat Musi raced for over 20 years in the early Pro Street days which eventually morphed into Pro Mod. Pat is a world-renowned engine builder specializing in Nitrous power plants so of course, Lizzy runs on of her father’s engine combinations in her “King Kong 6” – a 2015 Dodge Dart. She’s raced her way up the ranks from Jr. Dragsters which she raced from age 8 to 16. After a short racing hiatus, Musi jumped behind the wheel again at 21 years of age entering the Top Sportsman ranks with a 1968 Camaro. After two years behind the wheel of the Top Sportsman ride, it was time to take over the driving duties of her father’s PDRA eighth-mile Pro Nitrous ride. After sailing over the wall in a scary incident, she has found enormous success. Lizzy has stood atop the podium many times claiming event wins on the national PDRA circuit, and currently holds the PDRA Pro Nitrous ET and MPH records at 3.675 and 205.41. She is also the first woman to win a Pro Mod event in the Middle East when she raced in Qatar during the winter of 2016. The drive is strong with this fast female and her success is sure to continue.

A lifelong car kid, Steven grew up around drag strips – his name may sound familiar because his grandfather is Bob Bunker, a Pro Mod pioneer who piloted the “Folsom Flash” ’55 Chevy from the ’70s through the ’90s. Steven’s father, Bob Bunker Jr., heads up Bunker Motorsports and is a regular in the West Coast racing scene, building chassis and race cars for more than 30 years. With genetics like that, it’s no wonder Steven has a passion for both cars and motorsports. In addition to helping his father and honing his fabrication skills at Bunker Motorsports, Steven began shooting photos at the drag strip and capturing the action with his Canon camera. He is now artfully crafting stories around the awesome machines at the shows, as well as the men and women behind them. When he's is not on the road covering events, he spends his downtime out on the water fishing, building his 1962 Chevy Nova, or cruising his 1987 GMC Suburban.
