Dominic Scelzi claims 7th career SCCT win on Saturday at Merced Speedway


Fresno’s Dominic Scelzi raced to his 7th career Sprint Car Challenge Tour victory on Saturday night at the Merced Speedway.


After battling tooth and nail with several racers, Scelzi eventually took over the top spot on lap 14 and withstood several caution flags to earn the $2,500 triumph on Saturday night.


Current World of Outlaws point leader Carson Macedo made a rare SCCT appearance and came home in second after applying heavy pressure to Scelzi over the closing laps. The Merced Speedway bullring as always provided outstanding racing in the 35-lap contest.

Fremont’s Shane Golobic carved his way from 10th to third in the feature, with Justin Sanders and Ryan Bernal rounding out the top-five.


Sanders led the initial laps during the main event and battled with Gauge Garcia over several laps. Garcia, last season’s Rookie of the Year, looked impressive at times and led laps in the feature until overshooting the corner at one point. Completing the top-10 in the main event were Chase Johnson, Cole Macedo, Tim Kaeding, Jake Morgan and Justyn Cox.


Morgan earned the Pit Stop USA Hard Charger Award carving his way from 24th to ninth in the feature.


A total of 40 cars competed during the second round of the Elk Grove Ford Sprint Car Challenge Tour presented by Abreu Vineyards season on Saturday.
