The best run from each session is added together to determine class rankings, with runs being timed to 1/1000th of a second and two-second penalties assessed for knocking down a cone. Class trophies are then distributed Saturday during the evening’s social event.
Session 3 on Sunday is another three runs to determine qualifiers for the Top Dog and Under Dog Challenges. The top eight on index per heat qualify for the Top Dog Challenge, and those placing in positions 9-16 on index per heat qualify for the Under Dog Challenge. Everyone else is eligible for the drawing to be in the Lucky Dog Challenge. Then the Challenges take place in Session 4 of the event.
