Inside Line Promotions – ANTIOCH, Calif. (May 14, 2024) – Dominic Scelzi will participate in a pair of sprint car divisions this Saturday at Thunderbowl Raceway.

The elbows-up track in Tulare, Calif., hosts the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series and the Kings of Thunder 360ci winged sprint cars.

“There’s no question Tulare is my favorite track and it’ll be good to get back there,” Scelzi said. “Both races we’ve done this year in Hanford have been good and racy. We’ve had a first and a second so I’m hoping we can go to Tulare and expect the same thing.”

Scelzi has been victorious at the track each of the last three years and he is seeking redemption following a frustrating finish to a NARC 410 Sprint Car Series race last Saturday at Antioch Speedway.

Scelzi qualified seventh quickest and advanced from third to second place despite mechanical problems during a Contra Costa County Clash heat race.

“We dropped a valve a lap in and it was still running so I knew it was important to finish the heat race in a good position,” he said. “We were able to make a pass running on seven cylinders.”

The team lined up on the inside of the fifth row in the main event.

“We were in sixth and passing for fifth when a caution came out about 10 laps in so I felt we had a strong race car,” he said. “I had passed (Cole) Macedo two laps prior and was underneath someone for fifth when the yellow came out. I don’t understand the scoring because they put Cole in front of me for the restart. The second we went green those two got together and I had nowhere to go. I got into someone and it ripped the right front shock off and damaged the nose wing. I tried to run for a lap or two, but ended up pulling off because the damage was too severe.”

Scelzi was credited with a 21st-place finish.
