Giovanni Scelzi Nets Top-10 Result During KWS-NARC Season Opener

Inside Line Promotions – BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (April 10, 2018) – Giovanni Scelzi garnered his first top-10 finish of the season on Sunday at The Dirt Track at Kern County Raceway Park.

Scelzi and his family owned, Roth Motorsports backed No. 41 began the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series season-opening event by qualifying eighth quickest. He then won a heat race after starting on the outside of the front row to earn enough points to make the dash.

“We didn’t time in very good so I knew I had to win the heat to make it into the dash,” he said. “We were good in the heat and it paid off.”

Scelzi then placed sixth in the dash to start the A Main on the outside of the third row.

“They ripped the track up before the feature and it was one lane around the bottom,” he said. “We thought it’d go away and it never did. I tried to make something happen on the top and it just wasn’t there. In the first 10 laps I tried three or four times up there, but every time I tried a lane up I lost ground or fell back.”

Scelzi closed the night with an eighth-place result.

“I feel like I’m racing better every night,” he said. “Hopefully the results will start reflecting that soon.”

Scelzi will pilot his family car this Friday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., with the Taco Bravo Sprints and Saturday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif., for the 3rd annual Jimmy Sills Classic with the Sprint Car Challenge Tour.
