Dominic Scelzi Records Two Top Fives During Weekend in Texas

Dominic Scelzi earned a pair of top-five results last weekend during an ASCS Elite Outlaw Sprints doubleheader in Texas.

Scelzi guided his family-owned sprint car to a fourth-place finish on Friday at Hunt County Raceway in Greenville, Texas, where he placed fifth in a heat race before starting 15 th in the feature.

“The track was hooked up, just super, super wet,” he said. “It widened up quite a bit for the feature. We went where they weren’t and did our best to stay out of trouble. By the time we got to fourth there was five or six laps to go. I got to the third-place car, but wasn’t able to do anything before the race ended. It was a good rally.”

The 11 positions gained were the second most for any driver during the race.

Scelzi ventured to Kennedale Speedway Park on Saturday. He won a heat race before the feature redraw placed him eighth on the starting grid. Scelzi advanced inside the top five within the first handful of laps before a competitor ran into him from behind, spinning Scelzi and forcing him to restart at the back of the pack.

Once again, Scelzi charged forward and climbed to a season-best third-place finish by the time the checkered flag was waved.

“We were really good both nights, super maneuverable,” he said. “I’m happy about our speed. It’s frustrating when you feel you have the car to beat both nights and stuff happens, but we have speed and that’s what matters as we start our season in the Midwest.”

Scelzi will return to the bullring this Friday and Saturday for the World of Outlaws Cowtown Classic with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.

“It’s always nice to at least see a place before you show up there with the best guys in the world,” he said. “Hopefully the track is a little wider this weekend. It was a little tough to pass on Saturday. Fingers crossed it’s a little wider and we can qualify well to set ourselves up for a good weekend.”
