Swindell Driving for Son During All Star Doubleheader on Heels of USCS Victory

Inside Line Promotions - LEXINGTON, Tenn. (Aug. 28, 2017) - Sammy Swindell will tackle an Arctic Cat All Star Circuit of Champions doubleheader in Ohio this weekend when he will pilot his son's sprint car.

It will be only the second time Sammy Swindell has driven for Kevin Swindell as the duo made the Kings Royal A Main in July during their debut together.

"We've wanted to do a few races together, but it has been hard to figure it out with both our schedules," Sammy Swindell said. "Luckily, this weekend is open and there's a couple of big races in Ohio."

The Swindell's will compete on Friday at Attica Raceway Park in Attica and on Saturday at Wayne County Speedway in Orrville.

Momentum is on Sammy Swindell's side after he earned his third feature victory of the season last Saturday at Lexington 104 Speedway, where he and car owner A.G. Rains won both a heat race and the main event after starting on the pole of each race.

"We got the advantage of the draw," Swindell said. "We started on the pole and there wasn't a lot of passing. They drew a four and we were fourth in points so that put us on the pole for the main event. We were able to drive away there.

"In the heat race we were probably three quarters of a lap ahead of the second-place car. In the main event we were quite a way out. There was a lot of traffic. It seemed like after three or four laps following a restart you'd catch the back of the field. The track stayed pretty quick. It got some rubber down in some places. The second half of the race you couldn't move up and go around guys. You had to wait and it let the guys behind us catch up. Most of the time I got through the traffic better. It was a fairly easy night for us."

The victory wrapped up a strong weekend that began on Thursday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. Swindell advanced from fifth to fourth place in a heat race before he rallied from 15th to eighth in the main event.

"We drew a high number and had a good heat race," he said. "We just had to start back too far. The track wasn't real good for passing and we were in a lot of traffic the whole time. You'd be behind two guys that are racing and that tracks not real big.

"In the main event you couldn't run on the bottom of the corners because it was bone slick, but there were some sticky spots down there on the straightaways. I'm not sure how you get a track like that. One minute you're pulling the front wheels off the ground and the next you can't even be on the throttle. I could get rolling pretty good by myself and could run people down, but the traffic never opened up. We took what we could get."


Aug. 24 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 4 (5); Feature: 8 (15).

Aug. 26 - Lexington 104 Speedway in Lexington, Tenn. - Heat race: 1 (1); Feature: 1 (1).


32 races, 3 wins, 10 top fives, 18 top 10s, 20 top 15s, 24 top 20s

SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT - Rossie Feed & Grain

"Jon Black, who owns Rossie Feed & Grain, is a race fan we got to know and who has turned into a friend," Swindell said. "Rossie Feed & Grain has been with me since I went to the Big Game car and has been a part of our Chili Bowl team. We are very appreciative of Jon's support."

Swindell would also like to thank John Christner Trucking, Acme Graphix & Design, High Performance Lubricants, Brown & Miller Racing Solutions, Simpson Race Products, CP Pistons, FK Rod Ends, Sweet Manufacturing, Schoenfeld Headers, MyRacePass and Inside Line Promotions for their continued support.

Giovanni Scelzi Rebounds From Early Misfortune in Arkansas and California

Inside Line Promotions - PETALUMA, Calif. (Aug. 28, 2017) - Giovanni Scelzi overcame tough luck during the start of a pair of main events last weekend.

Scelzi charged from sixth to third place on Thursday at Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark., during a Lucas Oil ASCS National Tour heat race. That locked him and the BDS Motorsports team into the feature redraw, in which he pulled the No. 2 during the random redraw to start the main event on the outside of the front row.

"I made a mistake that cost us a chance at winning the race," he said. "(Aaron) Reutzel got the jump on me. I went to turn underneath him. The guy in third didn't know I was there. We met in the middle and I got the short end of the stick."

The contact in turn one on the opening lap spun Scelzi around and he was forced to restart the race last - 22nd.

"The track was good and it was a fun track," he said. "We were able to go forward. I felt like we were still moving at the end of the race. Once the leaders got to me I felt like I was just as fast with them. If I could have stayed up there I could have challenged for the win. It's frustrating to make a mistake and not give yourself a chance, but you're going to have nights like that. We were competitive and I learned so it was a good night."

Scelzi rebounded from the early miscue to garner a 12th-place finish.

The weekend wrapped up on Saturday at Petaluma Speedway, where he and the Roth Motorsports team qualified fourth quickest during the King of the West-NARC Fujitsu Series event. Scelzi then placed fourth in a heat race to start the main event on the outside of the fifth row.

"We pushed off for the feature and I could feel the steering wheel shift so I pulled into the work area," he said. "A bolt snapped so I lost steering. They fixed it real quick and we had to start last. The track was one lane around the middle so I was surprised we were able to get a top 10."

Scelzi powered from last - 19th - to post a 10th -place result. He now ranks second in the championship standings with three series races remaining.

Scelzi and Roth Motorsports will compete this Saturday at Keller Auto Speedway in Hanford, Calif., in a 360ci sprint car event.


Aug. 24 - Riverside International Speedway in West Memphis, Ark. - Heat race: 3 (6); Feature: 12 (2).

Aug. 26 - Petaluma Speedway in Petaluma, Calif. - Qualifying: 4; Heat race: 4 (3); Feature: 10 (10).


29 races, 5 wins, 16 top fives, 20 top 10s, 25 top 15s, 27 top 20s
