ELDON, Mo. (May 24, 2020) – Beating out Mother Nature, twice, before having to fend off Sam Hafertepe, Jr. the spoils of victory went to California’s Dominic Scelzi Sunday night as the west-coast shoe claimed his first career ASCS Regional Victory at Lake Ozark Speedway.

Worth $4,000, Scelzi topped the showdown between the ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings and Wraps and the American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products.

Leading the opening 23 laps, Scelzi lost the point to the Hills Racing/Heidbreder Foundation No. 15h of Sam Hafertepe, Jr. on Lap 24. Battling back to the top spot in traffic on Lap 30, Scelzi held pace over the field the final 10 laps with his margin of victory advancing to 2.522 seconds.

Sam Hafertepe, Jr. held on for second with Missouri’s Brian Brown racing from eighth to third in the FVP/Casey’s General Store No. 21. Making up eight positions to fourth was Parker Price-Miller with Washington’s Seth Bergman completing the top five. Austin Alumbaugh grabbed sixth with Miles Paulus, Ayrton Gennetten, Austin O’Neal, and Sean McClelland making up the top ten.

Looking ahead, the ASCS Warrior Region presented by Impact Signs, Awnings and Wraps will be in action again on Saturday, June 13 at Legit Speedway with the ASCS Mid-South Region. The American Bank of Oklahoma ASCS Sooner Region presented by Smiley’s Racing Products will see a pair of nights this weekend starting Friday, May 29 at Red Dirt Raceway (Meeker, Okla.), and Tri-State Speedway (Pocola, Okla.) on Saturday, May 30. The Saturday showdown also includes the ASCS Mid-South Region.
