Lizzy Musi crashes Kye Kelley’s Shocker last night at North Star Dragway in Denton, TX.
According to Kye, the transbrake was engaged down track. Fortunately she is ok. This was a prepped track.
Kye said “Shocker on the other hand is hurt pretty bad and someway somehow I’ll find the funds to get it fixed so we can continue to make history as a drag racing couple doing what we love to do.”
“To make a long story short , we replaced the steering wheel yesterday because we noticed a crack in it and with that being said the transbrake button was a different location, my reverse lights is wired to come on when my trans brake is engaged. About 1.8 in the run right before the shift change she accidentally bumped the button , locked the trans up and the car immediately slid left and hit the wall.”
“I’m not gonna say it was a freak accident because I’ve seen it happen to many of my friends over the years. Sad day for us because that car is a huge part of our life, just tough luck.”
“Thanks for all the calls and text , it means a lot. Hope to have it fixed before the Memphis race if the stars align perfectly. We will be in Topeka today with aftershock , it’s still not dialed In but we gonna give it a shot!” ... See MoreSee Less
Out of 814 people making comments how many of actually driven a fast car anything faster than tens I bet more than half Have Nots or even three quarter of you internet trolls it can happen very fast and then fast cars whoever's behind the wheel she's been faster in the 3:30 then probably all 800 people making comments and bad-mouthing her what losers
I would think down track you'd be in high gear transbrake shouldn't engage.
Everyone talking about all her crashes!!! I guess John force should hang it up also since he has crashed more than 3 times!!! 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️
That’s sad... good to know she’s ok. My car has an FT600 and I can disable the trans brake for many seconds I want after a validated launch. That’s a nice feature that will prevent things like that to happen again.
This is why I have the transbrake lock out activated for 30 secs after the button is released.Of course I have a delay box with that function, not sure if Kye has one or not
That's why you never let someone else drive your car
Kye already said she hit the transbrake button....
If the trans brake was activated, it could have been locked out.
Most, if not all delay boxes have lockout feature.
You know how many wrecks Stevie fast Jackson has been in? I bet nobody will say he needs to get out of the car. that's all part of racing.
Ballpark im guessing 2 hours each stump with backhow and probably 300 for dump fees and using dump truck. Probably aboyt 650 to 700 or so. Let me know how that sounds. Thank you
Do not need a delay box. A simple timer only device, shift timer, whatever, will work. Triggers on TB activation for a set amount of.........time
Give that chic 2 thumbs up no matter how many crashes she’s been in she gets right back in the seat like a real racer should !!
Shit happens ! Clean it up and keep it moving !
Lizzy’s a Bad Ass !
Everyone’s a Facebook professional drivers... everyone has done something stupid they wished they didn’t.. she is alright and that’s all that matters the car is just metal and can be fixed fine.. keep trucking kye you got a long line of haters
It happens funny how people say how they would or how she could had. Lizzy know how to drive and Kye not gping let her drive a unsafe car.
She is ok and can race again.
Kye and Lizzy be just fine .
It happens. Glad she’s ok.
All you love seat racers need a reality check. Anything can happen in Racing. Many people have made the same mistake. Some faired better than others so put the gavel away because your are in no position to judge.
Hey the point is she's ok. You can fix the shocker are buy another one. But you can't get another Lizzy. It's all part of the game ppl!!!
Why does there have to be any negative comments? Just be nice and be thankful she’s ok. She’s a super sweet young lady.
I am glad she is ok! All she has ever driven is cars that the power to weight ratio is awesome and they are always on the verge of breaking loose. That woman knows how to wheel a car! Good luck on rebuild Kye
Maybe the simple answer for these guys is to put a kr delay box in it , they can set it up for pro tree and has a timer you can set to not reactivate until it clears or you clear the box yourself , 600 dollars would save a lot of cars from reactivation
Keep ur head up guys. Y'all got this. It's nice to a couple do what they love together. Remember have fun be safe and remember the small things in life, take nothing for granted, and don't forget uyalls roots
Glad she's OK. Shit happens. Mistakes can be made. Lots going on in a short time. Cars can be fixed - the important thing is that nobody was hurt. Hope he can get it back together soon.
Glad she ok and yall r awesome and that bad ass car will be back in no time and good luck on the race this weekend in Aftershock
Glad she is ok, I know it's costly money wise but cars can be rebuilt, there isnt any replacement for our loved ones. Looking forward to seeing the new shocker . Best of luck with your other car and the rest of your season. Fans from SW Ohio
Done this in my car coming down the return road luckily I was only going 5-10 mph next weekend moved the button off the steering wheel and up on the halo bar so it couldn’t be bumped by accident
