Athletes can earn a generic qualification to the WRWC by participating in Qualifier Series events. The Qualifier Series is a string of events held prior to the 2023 WRWC where athletes who nominate and place in the top spot in their respected discipline at the qualifier will earn a generic qualification to the 2023 WRWC.
Earning a WRWC Qualifier Series Generic Qualification is an important opportunity for the athlete. These earned competition positions automatically place the athlete in the Qualifying Round of the WRWC regardless of Segment W23 leaderboard position.
Up to Twelve (12) select women’s rodeo/standalone events hosted by WRWC and/or an approved event producer will feature women-only OPEN and CHALLENGER competition in Barrel Racing, Breakaway Roping and Team Roping.
The athlete must participate in an WRWC Qualifier Series Event to be eligible to earn a generic qualification to the WRWC event. Participation in the WRWC Qualifier Series is verified once the athlete voluntarily nominates Segment W23 for the QS event.
The generic qualification will be given in the average round of the event to the highest placing athlete in the Pro and Challenger competition. If the event does not have an average, then the qualification will be given based on the round that determines the overall event winner.
The WRWC Qualifier Series will also feature a VRQ Fast Cash payout at the event. The Qualifier Series Fast Cash will be no less than 40% of nomination fees from the athletes participating in the WRWC Qualifier Series Side Pot.
Qualifier Series Fast Cash
will be double the nomination fee paid to the highest placing Pro and Challenger participating in the WRWC
Qualifier Series Side Pot.
For example: if the highest placing Pro paid a $200 nomination fee, they will receive a $400 Fast Cash
Each Qualifier Series event will also feature VRQ Expand Points to 20 places in any paid round of competition for the main competition. The Qualifier Series Side Pot is not eligible for nomination. The Expanded Points feature provides opportunities for more athletes to earn valuable W23 leaderboard points
