FRESNO, Calif. — Dominic Scelzi has formed an alliance with Roth Motorsports to compete in the entire King of the West Sprint Car Series schedule as well as the World of Outlaws STP Sprint Car Series events on the West Coast.

“I want to thank Dennis and Teresa Roth and Todd Ventura for giving me this huge opportunity,” said the son of former NHRA Top Fuel champion Gary Scelzi. “They are helping us out tremendously and helping us reach our goal of contending for a King of the West championship. They’ve put us on the right path.”

Scelzi garnered King of the West Rookie of the Year honors last season en route to capturing the 410 Rookie of the Year by the North American 410 Sprint Car Poll voting panel of media members, promoters, sanctioning officials and manufacturers.
In 2014, Scelzi will race in his own equipment under the Roth Motorsports banner.

“They are going to be a big part of our race team for 2014,” he said. “Our race cars will mirror the Roth Motorsports cars driven by Tim Kaeding and Kyle Hirst, who are drivers I’ve looked up to. And I can’t thank my parents and family enough for the support throughout the years, which has provided me this amazing opportunity.”

Scelzi will kick off his winged sprint car season March 5-6 at The Dirt Track at Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nev., with the World of Outlaws.
