An ultra-tight points race is currently seen with the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midgets as the season winds down. Canton, Illinois racer Chris Windom and California favorite Michael “Buddy” Kofoid are locked in a torrid battle for the championship.

The Elk Grove Ford Hangtown 100 marks the second ever appearance by the USAC NOS Energy Drink National Midget Series to the Placerville Speedway. Also sharing the card will be the BCRA/ California Lightning Sprints, which are set to run without the wings each night.

The expanded three-night event will utilize a modified Trophy Cup style format, featuring larger than normal inverts. All the biggest names in USAC National Midget racing will be in action, as well as special guest appearances by some of racing’s biggest stars.

With the show now moving to a weekend date, it is sure to be even bigger and better in 2021. Camping is available on the El Dorado County Fairgrounds and can be reserved by calling 530-621-5860.
