Inside Line Promotions - TULARE, Calif. (April 11, 2022) - Dominic Scelzi earned his fourth second-place result of the season last Friday during a Kings of Thunder event at Thunderbowl Raceway.
Scelzi was a contender throughout the night as he timed in fifth quickest in qualifying to kick off the competition.
"We went out late in qualifying and ended up fifth, which I was pretty happy with," he said. "Then we started on the pole of a heat race and won it. We also won the dash."
Scelzi's heat race and dash victories placed him on the pole for the main event.
"They did a full rework on the track before the feature and it was pretty wide open for the first 20 laps," he said. "On the initial start the bottom wasn't the place to be. I fell to third before we got into turn one. It was impossible to pass. We ran right behind the top two for 15 laps. When the yellow came out the track was starting to get wider, but it was still wide open. I made a move to get to second after the restart. I hit a hole and fell back to third. Then I got back to second on a restart with three laps to go."
Scelzi's second-place run was his fifth top five of the season.
Saturday's King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., was canceled because of extreme wind. The series is off until April 30 when Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif., hosts the 10th annual David Tarter Memorial.
Scelzi is unsure of his racing plans during the next two weeks leading up to that event.
