The Landon Cassill Qualifying Challenge Returns for 2021 with Support from Blue-Emu

Posted by Administrator November 2, 2021 in Press Releases

The Landon Cassill Qualifying Challenge with Blue-Emu is BACK with a brand new format! 

The Landon Cassill Qualifying Challenge returns with a first-of-its-kind format. The opening round of this year’s #LCQC has room for up to 360 drivers. They will compete in group qualifying where the top 40 drivers will advance to the second round. 

The second round will feature All-Star qualifying, where a driver will run three laps and complete one stop and go in the pits (where they will be allowed to speed). The top 15 will advance to the finals, but 25th-16th will compete in a last chance qualifier. This will be a pursuit-type race, where the last place driver will be eliminated after every lap, the last driver standing will be the 16th driver for the finals.

The finals will be a head-to-head (1v1) format, where drivers will be seeded based on previous round performance. The top seed chooses who they will qualify against live on air, and then they will both make one lap to see who advances. Once 8 head-to-head matches have been made, the drivers remaining will be reseeded based on previous round performance. This will repeat until we have one winner.

 

Key Details  

  • Prize pool of $12,600 
  • Only 360 entries allowed (First come, first serve)
  • Open Qualifying -> All-Star Style Qualifying -> Head to head 1v1 for the grand prize!
