Format announced for the inaugural Hangtown 100 at Placerville Speedway on November 19th and 20th

Placerville, CA – With the Elk Grove Ford Hangtown 100 fast approaching at Placerville Speedway, officials with the event have announced the format for the much-anticipated double header on November 19th and 20th.

As noted, the Hangtown 100 will feature a Trophy Cup style format that has been slightly modified. The number one theme, however, will be larger than normal inverts and points on the line each time a driver hits the speedway.

On opening night drivers will draw randomly in a draft style format and then get to select which heat race to participate in and what order they will qualify in among that heat race. The qualifying draft will be available on Facebook Live by visiting the Placerville Speedway page. Drivers will have a 60-second time clock to decide where they want to be placed.

Heat races will feature an invert of eight with the winner and top-two in points transferring to the A-main, with all others heading into three Last Chance Qualifiers. The top-two finishers in each LCQ will transfer into the 30-lap Pure Crop 1 A-main, which will showcase the top-12 in points inverted.
