Timber Cup Goes To Dominic Scelzi

ELMA, Wash. — Dominic Scelzi put together a perfect 30 laps of racing at Grays Harbor Raceway to pocket a $5,000-to-win Timber Cup check with the NARC 410 Sprint Car Series.

It was his first NARC win of the season for the driver of the Scelzi Enterprises Whipple Superchargers No. 41 Maxim. He became the fifth different winner of the Fastest Five Days in Motorsports.


Scelzi had a flawless start at the drop of the green which rocketed him to a 10-car length advantage over the rest of the field. 

It only took him seven laps to reach traffic, allowing Justin Sanders to close the distance in a highspeed game of cat and mouse. Sanders, aboard the Farmer’s Brewing Company No. 2x KPC passed the leader on the back straightaway on lap twelve, only to have Scelzi elbow up on the inside of turn four and reclaim the top spot.

The only caution of the race appeared with only two-laps remaining, setting the stage for a green-white-checkered shoot out. However, Scelzi took no prisoners on the restart and went on to claim his 23rd series victory.

“It feels like it’s been a long time, but we were really good tonight,” said Scelzi. “I saw (Justin) Sanders on the outside, and Justin and I have raced for a long time, and I knew when he was up there he was good there, I was thankful to get back by him, and I’m glad he didn’t get back underneath me.”

Sanders held off a hard-charging Trey Starks on the last lap to finish in the runner-up spot. Starks completed the podium in third in his T&C Concepts No. 55 J&J.

Tanner Holmes made some late race moves and finished fourth in his Builders Outlet Super Store No. 18t.

Cole Macedo would end up fifth and claim the Fastest Five Days in Motorsport title for the his Motorsports team.

“It’s always fun to come out here to Oregon and Washington and see all these great fans,” said Macedo, “Drew Warner (crew chief) and the boys did a really good job, and it takes a team effort to put together a week like this and win a championship. If we keep putting up top fives and running up front, wins will always come.”
