Dominic Scelzi is about to embark upon another busy month as the summer winds down.
Scelzi plans to race this Friday and Saturday at Ocean Speedway in Watsonville, Calif., during the Johnny Key Classic. He has won at least once at the track every year he’s raced there since 2018.
“We’ve been successful racing in Watsonville and have won a lot of races there,” he said. “The Johnny Key Classic is another big race in California so hopefully we can put ourselves in position to contend for a victory each night.”
Scelzi will then make his way north for Western Sprint Tour races on Aug. 21 at Cottage Grove Speedway in Cottage Grove, Ore., and Aug. 22 at Coos Bay Speedway in Coos Bay, Ore. He swept a pair of Western Sprint Tour races at Cottage Grove Speedway last month.
“I had a blast racing in Oregon last month and we were able to do pretty well so we’re aiming to continue that success,” he said.
The following weekend will feature a trip to Montana for the ASCS Frontier Region’s Harvey Ostermiller Memorial on Aug. 25-26 at Big Sky Speedway in Billings. Scelzi last raced there in August 2018 when he earned a 10th-place finish with the World of Outlaws NOS Energy Drink Sprint Car Series.
“We haven’t raced in Montana in a while, but I have fond memories of our solid run with the Outlaws there a few years ago,” he said. “The ASCS race coming up offers a big payout and we want to support tracks that are putting on these big shows. It’s a long travel for us so hopefully it will be a winning weekend.”
Scelzi will then join the World of Outlaws Labor Day Weekend (Aug. 31 – Sept. 2) at Skagit Speedway in Alger, Wash., and will follow ‘The Greatest Show on Dirt’ the next couple of weeks with races at Grays Harbor Raceway in Elma, Wash. (Sept. 4); at Silver Dollar Speedway in Chico, Calif. (Sept. 7-9); at Kings Speedway in Hanford, Calif. (Sept. 15); and at Placerville Speedway in Placerville, Calif. (Sept. 16).
“We are looking forward to spending three straight weekends racing with the World of Outlaws,” he said. “We haven’t really been able to race with them the last couple of years so it will be a great opportunity to test ourselves against the best in the sport.”
