Dominic Scelzi Earns Runner-Up Result During Johnny Key Classic

Inside Line Promotions – WATSONVILLE, Calif. (Aug. 25, 2021) – Dominic Scelzi picked up a pair of top-10 finishes last weekend during the Johnny Key Classic at Ocean Speedway.

Scelzi qualified 19th quickest during the opener on Friday before he finished where he started – fifth – in a heat race to narrowly miss locking into the main event. A runner-up result in the B Main transferred him toward the back of the A Main.

“We went out pretty early in qualifying and the track was really greasy,” he said. “I felt like we put down a good lap for when we went out, but the track got way faster. In the heat race I got under the car in front of me, but we hit grease and I wasn’t able to get by the car so we ran fifth. Then we moved forward and did what we needed to do in the B Main to transfer into the feature.”

Scelzi drove into the top 10 within the first 10 laps and gained two more positions before the checkered flag was waved. His run from 18th to eighth place earned the Hard Charger Award for passing the most cars.

“We just missed the issues,” he said. “We had a good race car and got as high as seventh. A car in front of me bounced and I had to get off the gas or else I would have hit them, which allowed someone by. Just being able to finish was an accomplishment with the amount of cars that were tore up. All in all I was happy with our performance.”

Scelzi continued to move forward on Saturday as the track welcomed the Sprint Car Challenge Tour for the weekend finale. Scelzi timed in third quickest in his group and won a heat race to advance into the dash. A second-place result lined him up on the outside of the front row for the A Main.

“We qualified a lot better on Saturday and I felt like we raced really good,” he said. “At the drop of the green the outside wasn’t the place to start. We fell to third right away, but we got back to second and worked on the leader. We had a really good restart and slid him into turn one, but I wasn’t able to clear him and he powered around me. We ran him back down. At that time the track started laying rubber. I felt we had a chance to do something in traffic, but the yellow flag came out again with a few laps remaining. I got a really good restart, but just wasn’t able to do anything. To run second at the Johnny Key Classic is nothing to be upset about.”

Scelzi’s second-place effort was his 32nd top five of the season.

A big four-race weekend with the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series is on tap, running Thursday at Merced Speedway in Merced, Calif.; Friday at Ocean Speedway; Saturday at Stockton Dirt Track in Stockton, Calif.; and Sunday at Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif. Scelzi enters the weekend with a six-point lead in the championship standings.

“I think this is going to be the tell-tale,” Scelzi said. “These four races are going to set someone up to win the championship or to lose it. The next six races, the speedweek this weekend and the following weekend in Chico, will set the tone for who is going to be on top of the championship.”
