Lizzy Musi and NOLA Team Head To Test Sessions of Mega Cash Days 2022

Updated: Mar 12, 2023

It seems like we just watched the champion get the crown on No Prep Kings, blinked, and turned around and there’s already another major racing event going on for many of the Street Outlaws fan favorites. The turnaround from NPK to the next big deal which will be Street Outlaws: Mega Cash Days happened in the snap of one’s fingers and we’re more than ready to soak in the action.

As No Prep Kings is freshly in the rearview and Street Outlaws: Mega Cash Days is quickly approaching, competitors are scrambling to switch up from one format to another. With NPK using big tire combinations and Mega Cash Days requiring an entirely different setup with small tire cars, being able to get things dialed in with these new combinations that are designed for an unfamiliar surface could be a challenge.

In a world that’s normally dominated by the boys, Lizzy Musi has been making quite the statement. In fact, this year, she might be a bit more than a strong contender. She might be the one to beat at the top of the pack. However, as the racing surface is something different than what most of the competitors normally compete on, it has been quite a challenge for at least a few racers including both Lizzy Musi, Kye Kelley and Justin Swanstrom. If these experienced competitors are having issues, we’re sure that it’s not an exclusive experience for them, either. Therefore, it’ll be pretty interesting, when the show comes out, to see how the competitors adjust to the surface in the name of taking home a fat stack of cash.

This time, we get a unique behind-the-scenes look at just how complicated things might be, even for some of the most well-versed competitors. In fact, as Kye Kelley tells us, some of the cars from team NOLA are in “left field.” In other words, these machines have a long way to go, so much so that the group decided to head out to a local drag strip to try and take one step in the right direction. Some might be thinking that a drag strip is probably not the best place to optimize your setup for the street. However, the hope is that seeing some familiar numbers on a time slip might be a good first step in the name of getting these cars all sorted out.

As with anybody who wants to be the fastest they can possibly be, practice makes perfect. This includes everybody from the most established racers in the game all the way to beginners. It helps not only with the driver’s skill level. It also aids the ability to make the most efficient car possible. No matter how good your combination is running, there’s always something that can be done to make it just a little bit better.

This time, we follow along with a video from Lizzy Musi Racing that takes us along for some of the Norma Jeane test sessions before actually putting rubber to the road for a race with meaning. Musi says that she’s ready for some late nights and early mornings all in the name of putting together a winning effort. It seems as if, in a battle like this, every ounce of effort is what it’s going to take for whoever wants to take home first place.
