QUALIFIER SIDE POT – Anyone can enter a sidepot, whether you wish to qualify for finale event or not!


 To enter a side pot you must run within the open jackpot itself. By entering into a side pot, you will be entering a KLG Barrel Racing Community Cans Qualifier event. Therefore, not only will you be eligible for a discounted entry for the finale race in September at the Calgary Stampede indoor arena, you will receive 5 points toward the series buckles and prizes AND your one run’s time will be forwarded into calculations for additional payouts. In simpler terms, it is a forced rolled time into a theoretical second jackpot - making each race day a double header event, but with only one run.


IMPORTANT! You must participate in ONE qualifier sidepot to “qualify” for Calgary’s finale event on September 2018. You CAN run in Calgary without qualifying – however your entry fee will be higher per day & you will only be running for day money and not prizes. 


NOTE: Most prizes at our finale event are determined by the runs during the Calgary event itself (using the fastest time of two runs) - however to qualify to run for these prizes, you must participate within a minimum of one qualifier sidepot. There are also series prizes for those who participate within multiple qualifier sidepots!


BUY BACKS – If you knock a barrel or have a no-time (clean times do NOT qualify), you my retake your run for a “buy back” fee. HOWEVER, it is important to note that this re-run time will only count within the side pot and the time will NOT apply within the original race. 100% of “buy-back” money will go directly into the side pot payouts.


*Peewees do not need to buy back if they do not have a clean run. All peewees are offered FREE re-runs, for a run where they may have knocked a barrel or missed a pattern. However, if you have a clean run, your time will hold and not have the ability to re-run.
