“In an incredibly emotional weekend: We took the W at Cordova,” Robin Roberts Racing said in a Facebook post. “My team is awesome. In this picture are all of our tuners, workers, cooks, sales people, anthem singer, engine rebuilders, maintenance repair, etc., and all around all stars!

“We will talk more about this later… for now! Thank you all. It was an amazing experience. Keep the Faith!!”

On Sunday before racing began, he posted a prayer dedicated to Lizzy Musi. The 33-year-old passed away on Thursday night following her battle with Stage 4 Breast Cancer.

This was an extremely difficult weekend for the drivers. They dedicated the weekend to Musi.

However, while they were racing in her honor, they were mourning her loss.

Roberts gets on the board with a win before their summer break. The No Prep Kings tour will be back in August.

Three drivers have two wins each. Ellington defeated Justin Swanstrom at Virginia Motorsports Park in Virginia.

Ellington also defeated “Disco Dean” Karns at Beech Bend Raceway Park in Kentucky.

Multi-time Street Outlaws No Prep Kings Champion Ryan Martin has two wins. He won his first race of the season when he defeated Giuseppe Gentile at New England Dragway & Motorsports Park in New Hampshire.

He also defeated Kye Kelley at Brainerd International Raceway in Minnesota.

Gentile won back to back races. He first defeated Martin at Flying H Drag Strip in Missouri.

He also defeated Swanstrom at National Trail Raceway in Ohio.

Swanstrom defeated the late Lizzy Musi at Empire Dragway in New York. Jim Howe also defeated Martin at Maple Grove Raceway in Pennsylvania.
