Dominic Scelzi Scores Seventh-Place Finish During Scott Darley Challenge Prelim Night
Inside Line Promotions CLYDE, New South Wales, Australia (Jan. 16, 2018) Dominic Scelzi produced another strong weekend with Wormall Motorsport during the Scott Darley Challenge at Valvoline Raceway.
Scelzi kicked off the prestigious Ultimate Sprintcar Championship Series event, which featured several dozen drivers, last Friday by qualifying fifth quickest. He then advanced from third to second place to lock into the ninth starting position in the preliminary night A Main.
I really enjoy racing at Valvoline Raceway, he said. Its a track I get around really well and feel very comfortable at. Everything seemed to click well on Friday night. We timed in well and moved forward every time we hit the track.
Scelzi gained a pair of positions in the main event to close with a seventh-place finish, which tied his best finish in Australia this year.
It also locked him into the dash on Saturday, when he placed 10 th to start the main event on the outside of the fifth row.
We were in a good position, but I just never could get going, he said. It was frustrating to not move forward, but when you look at the roster of talented drivers there and the fact that we finished 11th its still a good showing.
I want to thank everyone at Wormall Motorsport for the opportunity. Were putting together some good runs.
Scelzi is slated to return to action this Thursday at Borderline Speedway in Mount Gambier, South Australia, Australia, for the Kings Challenge.
