Giovanni Scelzi Set for Pavement and Dirt Races in Iowa This Saturday
Inside Line Promotions - FRESNO, Calif. (July 14, 2020) - Giovanni Scelzi is doing double duty this Saturday.
Scelzi will pilot a Bill McAnally Racing pavement late model during an ARCA Menards Series event at Iowa Speedway in Newton, Iowa, before venturing approximately 28 miles south to Knoxville Raceway in Knoxville, Iowa, where he will drive a 410ci winged sprint car for Guy Forbrook.
"It will be a long day running the ARCA race and then heading to Knoxville, but I'm really looking forward to it," Scelzi said. "It will be my first time at Iowa Speedway, but I've heard it's an awesome place to race. Knoxville is a great track, too."
Scelzi has produced a lot of success during his limited number of starts at Knoxville Raceway, where he became the youngest 410ci winged sprint car winner in the history of the track last year. He also won the season finale, placed third out of 77 drivers during the 8th annual Bell Helmets Capitani Classic presented by Great Southern Bank and finished 10th at the 59th annual NOS Energy Drink Knoxville Nationals presented by Casey's General Stores.
"Knoxville is a place I'm really comfortable at," he said. "We made some changes to make us better since we ran there earlier this year. There will be a lot of good cars there so I'm looking forward to the challenge."
It will be an action-packed day as the ARCA Menards Series race is scheduled to start at 4:30 p.m. Hot laps at Knoxville Raceway begin at 6:45 p.m. with qualifying to follow.
