Red Rose Transportation Race Team
Sprint car racing is a part of the culture at Red Rose Transportation. Owner Julianne Scelzi is married to four-time NHRA champion Gary Scelzi, and together they have raised two sons who are now racing throughout the nation as a part of Gary Scelzi Motorsports. Brothers Dominic and Giovanni have known racing since the day they were born. They were taught in the pits at a young age and began racing at age six. Dominic is 19 years old and drives a 410ci Winged Sprint Car, while Giovanni is 15 years old and drives a 360ci Winged Sprint Car. Both boys started the 2017 Racing Session competing in various series throughout Australia.
These young drivers are sponsored by many companies including Red Rose Transporation and are home schooled to accommodate their busy racing schedules. We would love to have you come and see the Red Rose Transportation car in action. Check here for the schedule of races to see if we’re in your city sometime soon.

Dominic has known racing since the day he was born. He was taught in the pits at a young age as he followed his father – four-time NHRA champion Gary Scelzi – from race to race across the country.
Once he turned six years old, Dominic was allowed to officially compete, and despite missing a race because he was on the road with his family, Dominic claimed the track championship after winning all seven races he competed in that year.

Giovanni started traveling to races with his father when he was three months old and has been involved in the sport ever since. He began racing when he was six years old.
Giovanni competed in a Jr. Micro Sprint at Lemoore Raceway in Lemoore, California and at Plaza Park Raceway in Visalia, California for several years.
“I have learned so much from all of the people at the race track, especially my brother, Dominic, and the Faccinto brothers,” he said. “Racing is in my blood. I hope to one day race in NASCAR.”
