Rule Changes

Rule changes are still under review.

STEM Gals Participation

Female driver, operator, and human player.  We encourage all people on your drive team to be new to the role that they will be performing during this special tournament, so please don't use members of your competition drive team in their normal roles (outside of the drive coach).  If your team doesn't have enough female members, please feel free to use family members, members from other teams, etc. The goal of this tournament is to get more female members of our community in roles that they may not have experienced before, including driving and drive coaching.

NTX Alliance Selection

The top 8 teams are not allowed to select each other.  The selection sequence will be 1-8; 8-1​.  Since alliance selection will be outside the top 8, teams will not be allowed to decline unless they cannot stay for playoffs.
