National Dirt
Tuesday, 19 November 2019




Posted below is the format for both nights of the November 19-20 Elk Grove Ford Hangtown 100 from California's Placerville Speedway, featuring both the USAC NOS Energy Drink National and Western States Midgets battling for the richest purse for an event in USAC Midget history, totaling $150,000 and paying $5,000 to win on Tuesday, $20,000 to win on Wednesday and a $12,000 prize going to the top overall driver in points throughout both nights.



Pill draw draft to determine order of heat race selection.

Heat race placement selection (driver picks which heat to participate in and the order to qualify in during a draft style event shown on Facebook Live).

Qualifying: All cars qualify – 6 groups determined by heat race. Cars will qualify in the order picked by drivers. 36 points will be given for fast time in each group, and minus three points per position thereafter.

Six 10 lap Heat Races: Top 8 cars inverted in heats by qualifying points/time. 36 points will be given for first place, and minus 3 points per position thereafter. Three cars - first place (regardless of point total), and the two highest in total points (total points include qualifying and heat points) in each heat - transfer to Night One A-Main. All others to Night One Last Chance Qualifiers.

Three 12 lap Last Chance Qualifiers: Total points from qualifying and heat race finishes will be used to line up LCQ’s. Lineups will be straight up based on points. The top 3 in total points will start on the pole in each respective LCQ. The next 3 in total points will start outside pole in each respective LCQ, and so on. The top 2 from each LCQ will transfer to the Night One A-Main, but will not earn LCQ points. 50 points awarded for 3rd place minus 2 points for each position thereafter.

A-Main: 30 Laps, 24 Cars - 1st place and 2 highest in points from heat races plus 2 transfers from each LCQ. All cars, including LCQ transfers, will use total points to determine A-Main lineup. Top 12 in total points will line up inverted. The lowest 12 in total points will be lined straight up behind the 12 inverted cars. 100 points awarded to A-Main first place and minus 2 points per position thereafter.



No Qualifying. Lineups based on total points from night one.

Six 10 lap Heat Races: Top 8 cars inverted in heats by total points from night one. 36 points will be given for first place, and minus 3 points per position thereafter.

Total points will then be tallied to line up D, C, B, and A-Mains. Top 20 in points go to A-Main, positions 21-36 in points go to B-Main, positions 37-52 in points go to C-Main, and all others to D-Main.

D-Main: 10 Laps. Top 2 transfer to tail of C-Main. No points awarded.

C-Main: 15 Laps, 20 Cars. Top 4 transfer to tail of B-Main. No points awarded.

B-Main: 20 Laps, 20 Cars. Top 4 transfer to tail of A-Main. No points awarded.

A-Main: 100 Laps, 24 Cars. Top 12 inverted by points, followed by next 8 in points lined straight up, followed by B-Main transfers 1-4. 150 points awarded for first place and minus 3 points per position thereafter.

The driver with the most total points after the Night Two A-Main will be the overall point champion.

Ties in overall points will revert to qualifying times.

Promoter reserves the right to add provisionals to the Night Two A-Main.

Possible mandatory fuel stop between laps 40-50 of Night Two A-Main.
