Inside Line Promotions – FRESNO, Calif. (Feb. 15, 2021) – Dominic Scelzi is embarking upon a California-focused schedule in 2021.
There will only be a select number of races outside of his home state and after earning a trio of top 10s during his season-opening tripleheader in Arizona last month, Scelzi kicks off his campaign in California this Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford.
“Peter Murphy has done a great job there and we’re really looking forward to racing in Hanford a lot this year,” he said. “We haven’t been able to race there very often in recent years, but we have produced some great runs. I have four or five victories at the track in my career. It’s the track in California that races the most like the Midwest in my opinion.”
Scelzi has enjoyed a lot of successful outings at the dirt oval, where he has earned a handful of victories. His most recent trip to the Winner’s Circle at the track came last October when Scelzi captured the Morrie Williams Memorial after lining up 11th.
“That was a special victory,” he said. “It was awesome because we were driving for Williams Motorsports so to win that in honor of Morrie meant a lot. Plus, to cap the weekend by charging from 11th to pick up the win was certainly a confidence boost.”
Scelzi scored the win, a pair of top fives and a trio of top 10s in four features that weekend. He also produced a seventh-place showing during a 410ci winged sprint car event at Keller Auto Speedway last June.
“We’re looking for similar success this Saturday and to go after a win,” he said. “I think there will be a great car count with a lot of talented drivers so we will need to be strong from the time we unload.”
