Dominic Scelzi Produces Top-Five Performance During Tom Tarlton Classic

Inside Line Promotions – HANFORD, Calif. (Nov. 4, 2020) – Dominic Scelzi posted his 18th top-five outing of the season last Friday during the inaugural Tom Tarlton Classic.

Scelzi piloted his family owned car during the event at Keller Auto Speedway, where he opened the night by qualifying eighth quickest out of the 30 competitors. The heat race inversion put him on the outside of the front row, side by side with Kyle Larson.

“It was greasy for qualifying and when I qualified I was second quickest, but the track got faster and we weren’t able to keep that time,” Scelzi said. “We ended eighth quickest, which put us on the front row in the heat. I had a good start. Kyle slid me into turn one and I was able to turn underneath him. We won the heat race, which was great.”

Scelzi’s heat race triumph earned a spot into the dash. He then gained a position to finish second, which lined him up on the front row for the A Main. Dash winner Carson Macedo got lane choice and chose the outside lane for the initial start of the main event.

The top lane prevailed throughout the race. Scelzi rode in second early before he began searching the track in an effort to find a way to pass for the lead.

“I was getting really good restarts, but Macedo was way faster than everyone else,” he said. “I tried to slide him into turn one and he drove around me. I got tight against the cushion, which allowed Kyle and Brad (Sweet) to get by me.”

Scelzi finished fourth.

The season concludes this Friday and Saturday at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C., during the World of Outlaws Last Call with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series. Scelzi will drive for Roth Motorsports at the event. It marks his first time racing at The Dirt Track at Charlotte since May 2019 and only his third visit to the oval.

“I’m excited to head to North Carolina and get more laps at The Dirt Track at Charlotte,” he said. “Hopefully we can put together a strong weekend to wrap up the season on a positive note.”
