They're still trying to confirm a final 450 LCQ position. I'll go through in a minute and make a list of all the riders that had to turn it down due to injury or inability to compete.

Lame to give invites to people who weren't anywhere near the qualifying position, should just be 20-30, if that means 5 riders line up for the LCQ - oh well

It would look awful on TV to a general viewer to be like "look, we have a five-man race for four positions to qualify!".

Is it even being shown on TV? And is it much better than saying, this person qualified for the elite group by scoring on average, 1 point per race.

At least riders don't just get gifted spots inside the top 20th and have to earn it at all three races. Yeah it's true that we have heard the line "if you're not inside the top 30th, you're out" a little too often, but ML is right, 4-5 riders competing in the LCQ would look silly. I remember one 250 LCQ at Salt Lake two years ago with less than 10 riders, that looked shabby already

I like savagy but damn,there has been riders in the past who bought a bike and went out and did it and it turned into a good thing. Aka barcia and Wilson. It’s only 3 races,sometimes you need to invest in yourself.

You would think he would make money off it, right? Bizarre. I could be wrong.

During the press conference, which happened after they recorded that episode, what I have is what Weege listed off. I just checked with Weege and yes, Marilisi and Drake said yes then backed out right before the press conference started. So my list is accurate.

Is there a LCQ race at each of the 3 rounds? If so, can Surratt enter the LCQ at the Coliseum?

Unless someone else bows out from the first two, no, he can't

My fix would be top 22 rider hard cap with only exception to go past 22 is move up, injury or opt out. You pick the highest point guys that want to race until you get 22 full gate. If injury happens once the playoff starts that’s just one bike not on the gate. Put a tough block like the heat races. 

I just think having only the best 22 invited only and not running lcq’s would put even more emphasis on the “regular” season and the buble spots 18-24ish.

It is absolutely astonishing and disgusting that someone with as much talent as Joey couldn't get someone to loan him a race bike for these 3 races. I am not even a huge Savatgy fan.. but this is some bullsh&#! Joey could easily be a top ten guy.. all that money down the drain!

At end of day, this is just a knee jerk reaction $ series to WSX.  Great for the riders to earn more $, but useless to the sport and its record books.  The major (& regional) championships are secure  and these 3 events will hardly be playoffs (no one eliminated)  Rules are spotty and even the industry insiders (Pulp/Swap/Vital etc ) aren't exactly sure what is going down, who is in, who is out what a hybrid track is, what a championship means etc.  The big miss is MXSports and MXGP not putting together a Trans Am style outdoor fall series, best on best 250 and 450.  Unadilla, HiPoint, RedBud, GH, maybe a Euro round to lead up to Des Nations.  Would have much more soul and actually mean something.  We have been lucky the past couple years with both SX & Outdoors.  Why gum it up with 3 weeks of Monster Cup?

Maybe because he dared to speak out about Eli stiffing him after gifting him position at the monster cup 🤷‍♂️
