Scelzi Announces Opportunity to Compete at World of Outlaws World Finals

Inside Line Promotions – HANFORD, Calif. (Oct. 26, 2015) – Dominic Scelzi has another unique opportunity right around the corner.

Scelzi will return to drive for George Lasoski thanks to a partnership with Phil Durst and Lincoln Auto Auction during the Bad Boy Buggies World of Outlaws World Finals with the World of Outlaws Sprint Car Series Nov. 5-7 at The Dirt Track at Charlotte in Concord, N.C.

“I’m excited to head to Charlotte for the first time,” he said. “I want to thank George and Danny Lasoski as well as Phil Durst and Lincoln Auto Auction for the support.”

The marquee World of Outlaws event will be Scelzi’s first time at the unique track and his second weekend driving for Lasoski.

“It will be my first time racing with the Outlaws outside the West Coast,” Scelzi said. “I’m really excited because it’s a bigger race track. From the stuff on TV I’ve watched it seems like a slick race track. I enjoy racing on the bigger, slicker race tracks. I know it will be a learning experience. Our goal is to have two solid nights of racing. I hope we’re good on that Friday and even better on Saturday.”

It will be the same car Scelzi drove in early October with the FVP National Sprint League at I-80 Speedway in Greenwood, Neb., where he ended eighth the first night before capturing a podium finish during the finale.

Scelzi wrapped up his season in California last Saturday during the 30th annual Cotton Classic with the King of the West 410 Sprint Car Series at Keller Auto Speedway.

“Pretty much from hot laps on it was one lane,” he said. “In the heat race as well as the dash and the main if you got off the bottom you were going to get passed.”

Scelzi qualified 11th quickest, which earned him the pole of a heat race. He won the heat to lock into the dash, where he advanced from sixth to fifth place. That lined him up on the inside of the third row for the main event.

“We got a good start and right into fifth,” he said. “We made a bid for fourth place several times, but I just wasn’t able to get next to him to get around him. I think we had one of the top two or three cars, we just couldn’t make it happen due to the track conditions. I felt pretty happy to end the California season like that. We had a lot of speed and we did everything we needed to get ready for Charlotte.”

Scelzi scored a fifth-place result, which was his 18th top five of the season.
