Dominic Scelzi Produces Top-10 Outing During Race for Roth Motorsports
Inside Line Promotions - HANFORD, Calif. (June 22, 2020) - Dominic Scelzi recorded a top-10 result during a one-off race with Roth Motorsports last Saturday.
Scelzi was efficient throughout the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series season opener at Keller Auto Speedway, where he climbed behind the wheel of the No. 83jr sprint car for the first time since last November.
"I think we started back up where we left off," said Scelzi, who guided the team to a third-place finish in the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series championship standings last year. "We timed in good for going out late in qualifying. We did what we needed to do in the heat race. And we gained a spot in the dash."
Scelzi qualified sixth quickest. He then advanced from third to second place in a heat race. The accumulated point total earned a spot into the dash. Scelzi maneuvered from fifth to fourth place in the dash to line up on the outside of the second row for the A Main.
"We moved forward to second a few laps in," he said. "I was plugged against the cushion in turns one and two. Someone slid up and his right rear tire made contact with my left rear, which shoved me off the track. That put me back to 10th or 11th.
"It was so hard to make up ground that by the time we lost those positions we were out of contention. I think we had a top-three car. Our lap times were very, very good."
Scelzi rallied back from the incident to score a seventh-place result, which was his 12th top 10 of the year.
Scelzi returns to his family car this weekend when the team ventures to Jackson Motorplex in Jackson, Minn., Thursday through Saturday for the 42 nd annual AGCO Jackson Nationals with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.
