Inside Line Promotions - ELDON, Mo. (Oct. 20, 2020) - Saturday will mark another new track for Dominic Scelzi to check off the list.
Scelzi and Roth Motorsports invade Kokomo Speedway in Kokomo, Ind., for the second-to-last World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series event of the season.
"I'm excited to get an opportunity to race at Kokomo Speedway," he said. "We're putting a new car together so hopefully we can have more of a balance."
Scelzi made his debut with Roth Motorsports' World of Outlaws team last weekend during a pair of races in the Midwest. It began on Friday at Lakeside Speedway in Kansas City, Kan., where Scelzi made his first appearance. He timed in 25th quickest in qualifying, placed seventh in a heat race and ended fourth in the Last Chance Showdown to transfer into the back of the main event. Scelzi capped the night by maneuvering from 24th to 19th.
The team then headed to Lake Ozark Speedway on Saturday for the Jason Johnson Classic. Scelzi qualified 18th quickest, finished sixth in a heat race, produced a third-place run in the Last Chance Showdown and rallied from 23rd to 18th in the A Main.
"I think for us we're wading through all the stuff the team has," he said. "There is a lot of different stuff than the California team, which I drove for last year. We're trying to figure out what we need. We changed so much stuff in the two nights because we were extremely tight and didn't have good drive. When we were against moisture in the track the left front was off the ground. You get off the moisture and you get stalled out. Hopefully the new car we're putting together this week will put us in a good position on Saturday night at Kokomo.
"Dennis and Teresa Roth and Todd Ventura put in a lot for this team and I want to put together a solid night with a great result for them. The goal is to consistently run up front during the final couple of races this year."
