Inside Line Promotions – FRESNO, Calif. (Nov. 16, 2020) – Dominic Scelzi will wrap up the 2020 season this Friday at Merced Speedway, which features a 360ci winged sprint car race during its big weekend of hosting midgets.
Scelzi is slated to drive his family owned sprint car in his second career race at the bullring in Merced, Calif.
“My goal is to win,” he said. “I want to have good speed to start the night and be up there at the end of the night. I think we’ll be good.
“I showed up there a few years ago for a World of Outlaws race and didn’t make any laps because of mechanical problems. Earlier this year was really my first time racing there. It reminds me of River Cities Speedway (in Grand Forks, N.D.) with a wall on the backstretch. It’s extremely small and tight. The banking works to your advantage. It’s a track that was really fun earlier in the year and had a big cushion. The top and the bottom were very even.”
Scelzi posted a ninth-place result out of the 50-plus drivers competing with the Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour on March 6. Friday provides an opportunity to end the year with an exclamation point.
“After coming back from being on the road, I’ve only run one or two races in my family car and we’ve had really good speed,” he said. “I want to knock off a win, especially at a place I haven’t won at before. I feel we have the speed, but there’s going to be some really good guys there. We’ll put our best foot forward and see where it leads us.”
