Giovanni Scelzi Seeking Continued Success During Can-Am World Finals
Inside Line Promotions – FRESNO, Calif. (Nov. 5, 2019) – Giovanni Scelzi is heading to one of his most successful tracks this week as he and car owner Bernie Stuebgen venture to The Dirt Track at Charlotte.
The duo has captured a win and three top fives in four starts during World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series competition at the oval in Concord, N.C.
“The last couple of years of going to new tracks with tough competition you have to be comfortable right away,” Scelzi said. “We’ve consistently qualified good and had good runs. It’s always fun to go somewhere where you’ve had success. It brings the confidence level up.”
Scelzi posted a 15th-place outing during his debut at the track before he charged from 11th to fifth on the final night of the World Finals last year. He followed that performance by winning the opening night of the Patriot Nationals in May and overcoming a late caution by rallying from the back to fifth the following night.
“The last race it took rubber and everybody blew tires,” he said. “It was a unique race. I don’t think we’ll have to deal with rubber this weekend. I’m looking forward to a good race track at a good facility.”
Scelzi has already had a career-best year during limited World of Outlaws starts. In addition to the victory – the second of his career with the series – Scelzi has five top fives and a dozen top 10s. That’s the most he has recorded in both categories.
“Our performance has been good this year,” he said. “I’ve hopped in a few different rides and we’ve had a good year. All around I’m happy with how the year has gone. To end on a high note would be great. It brings you into the offseason and the next year a lot happier.”
