      • Top seven qualify for Finals - rest go to Last Chance Qualifier
      • Skate in forward direction, no stopping or redos
      • Each obstacle in each Lane may only be hit once in each Run
      • Top score from Lane 1 and Lane 2 averaged to determine final score
      • Strategy: When it comes time to choose a Lane for Run 3, it’s best to choose the Lane in which you have the lowest score
      • Each run is timed
        • Associated time from highest scored Run will be used to calculate overall placing
        • Placing in terms of time is subtracted from best Run score to determine overall placing
        • Maximum time penalty deduction is 10
        • Example: If average of Lane 1 and Lane 2 is 79 and skater is the 3rd fastest clocked time in his highest scoring run, the final score for overall placing is 79 minus 3 = 76
