Some people are just “born into it,” as they say. Son of NHRA racer Gary Scelzi, baby Dominic was along for the ride since he was three months old until his father stepped out from behind the wheel 11 years later. “I basically grew up in the pits,” Dominic recounted. “We had a Motorhome where we stayed in at the track.”

Passing on the love of going fast to his then six-year-old son, father Gary purchased the boy a GoKart. Within weeks, young Dominic missed only one race of his first racing season, winning all 7 races he competed in, earning the young prodigy the class championship.
Racer Dominic Scelzi plans to complete this year in the 360 Sprint Car, and hopefully move up into the 410 Sprint Car class for much of next year.

Dominic went directly to the Jr. Sprint class where he raced for another three years, moving up into the Restricted 600 class where he acquired a total of 18 feature wins, plus the track championship at Plaza Park Raceway in Visalia, CA.

Although living much of his childhood on the road, the Fresno, CA native – now 12 years old – moved into the Super 600 class where – at the age of 12 – racked up an impressive 24 feature wins and the track championship at Lemoore Raceway. Currently, Dominic still competes in the Super 600 class but focuses mainly on his 360 Sprint Car. The plan is to complete this year in the 360 Sprint Car, and hopefully move up into the 410 Sprint Car class for much of next year.

When it came to choosing K&N for his cars, Dominic said, “My dad used K&N products on my GoKart in 2003, and has continued to use K&N products ever since. The reusable air filters keep the motors clean so they will last longer.”
