PLACERVILLE, Calif. – Logan Seavey heads the overall point standings at the end of the first night of competition for the inaugural Elk Grove Ford Hangtown 100 at Placerville Speedway.

Seavey, who finished second to Tuesday night winner Gio Scelzi in the 30-lap main event, accrued 161 points through qualifying, heat races and the main event, topping Scelzi’s total by four tallies.

Scelzi ranks second in the event standings with 157 points, followed by Spencer Bayston, Jesse Colwell and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series star Ricky Stenhouse Jr.

Perhaps most impressive in the night-one standings is 10th-place Kyle Larson, who made a furious rally from 23rd to fourth and sits 10th in points going into the second night as a result of that effort.

No qualifying will be held on Wednesday, with the heat-race lineups set by total points from night one and an eight-car invert for all six heats. Thirty-six points will be awarded for first in the heats, decreasing by three points per position from there.

After Wednesday’s heats have been completed, the combined standings will set the fields for the D-Main, C-Main and B-Main, with the top 20 in points locking directly into the 100-lap A-Main.

Positions 21-36 in points fill the B-Main, with positions 37-52 making up the C-Main and positions 53 on going into the D-Main. The top two from the 10-lap D-Main will go to the tail of the C, the top four from the 15-lap C-Main will advance to the B-Main and the front four from the 20-lap Last Chance Showdown will tag the tail of the headlining 100-lap, $20,000-to-win main event.

No points will be awarded for the D, C or B-Mains.

The 100-lap A-Main will start 24 cars, plus provisionals, with the top 12 in points inverted and the next eight in points starting straight up behind them. The four B-Main transfers will then fill out the field.

Wednesday’s feature winner will earn 150 points, dropping by three points per position, and the driver with the most combined points at the end of the finale will be the overall Hangtown 100 champion and receive a $12,000 check for his or her efforts.

Ties in points will be broken by qualifying times from Tuesday night’s portion of the program.
