Is Scelzi Considering A Comeback?
Discussion among commentators during a racing telecast is fueling speculation Fresno's Gary Scelzi is thinking of getting back behind the wheel.
A KMPH employee reports they were talking about the possibility the four-time NHRA World Champion is considering coming out of retirement at the age of 53.
Scelzi won three of his titles in top fuel dragsters, and the other in funny cars.
He was one of the most popular drivers on the circuit when he retired in 2008 to concentrate on his Fresno truck building business, and to help his two young sons with their racing careers.
