Inside Line Promotions – KENNEDALE, Texas (March 27, 2024) – Dominic Scelzi passed a lot of cars as he faced some adversity the last couple of weeks while racing with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series in Texas.

Scelzi qualified 14th quickest, placed fifth in a heat race and hustled from 14th to sixth early on during the March 15 feature at Cotton Bowl Speedway in Paige. However, he lost a few positions in the waning laps to end 11th.

He returned to the bullring the ensuing night and improved by timing in 12th quickest and gaining a position to finish third in a heat race. Scelzi was running just outside the top five during the A Main when he got upside down after contact with the backstretch wall with only a couple of laps remaining. He was credited with a 19th-place result.

“Cotton Bowl has to be one of the best tracks in the country,” he said. “It was outstanding racing. If both features were a few laps shorter we’d have had nearly a couple of top fives, but it didn’t work out that way. I was bummed with our results, but pleased that we raced well both nights.”

The action shifted to Kennedale Speedway Park last Saturday after Friday’s weekend opener rained out. Scelzi was 15th quickest in his group during qualifying. He picked up a spot in a heat race to place seventh before advancing from sixth to third place in the Last Chance Showdown. Scelzi continued to move forward in the feature as he charged from 23rd to 12th – the second-most positions gained.

“We got ourselves a bit behind to start the night so it was good to show the progress we did,” he said. “It’s almost impossible to run up front or get a top five when you’re starting so far back. To come through the B Main and end up just outside the top 10 in the main event was a good rebound from how the night began.”

Next up will be World of Outlaws races this Friday at Thunderbird Speedway in Muskogee, Okla., during the World of Outlaws Thunderbird Showdown and Saturday at 81 Speedway in Park City, Kan., during the World of Outlaws Wichita Sprint Car Showdown. Scelzi has never competed at Thunderbird Speedway and he placed fourth during his most recent race at 81 Speedway in 2020.
