Scelzi Prepared for Mini Gold Cup This Weekend at Silver Dollar Speedway

Inside Line Promotions – FRESNO, Calif. (Feb. 28, 2017) – Dominic Scelzi is slated to kick off his season in the United States this weekend.

Scelzi, who spent part of the offseason racing in Australia for the first time in his career, will compete this Friday and Saturday at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif., during the Mini Gold Cup with his Roth Motorsports backed, family owned team. The finale is a King of the West – NARC Sprint Car Series event.

“We had a great time and learned a ton in Australia so hopefully that will help us start our season in the U.S. on the right foot,” he said. “I feel like the Australian trip did me so well. I raced against good competition. It kept me sharp and it raised my game. Plus, we have assembled a great crew. I truly feel like I have the best group of guys in the pits with Lee Stauffer, Scotty Martin and Brandon Hickman. They have been successful crew chiefs and veteran crew members on World of Outlaws teams. We have big goals this season so it’d be awesome to get it all started with a couple of great results this weekend.”

Scelzi produced two of his strongest results last season at Silver Dollar Speedway, where he recorded his first career victory in September after maneuvering from 12th to a fourth-place finish with the World of Outlaws Craftsman Sprint Car Series in April.

“We have a lot more confidence heading to Silver Dollar this year compared to any previous year,” he said. “It always helps to return to a track where you’ve won and getting our first-ever top five with the World of Outlaws last year was huge for our team. Silver Dollar is a place you have to learn how to run and I feel I’ve done that so I’m looking forward to this weekend.”

Scelzi added two other top 10s at the bullring last season and he scored three top fives there in 2015.
