Main# or Main Event --

"In RC car racing terms, this refers to the final race of the day in each class you are entered in. See Qualifier, then read the rest of this definition.

Right after all the qualifying races are over, the race computer will sort all the racers, with the 10 fastest racers in the """"A Main"""", the next 10 fastest in the """"B Main"""", and so on. The number of racers in each main may vary, depending on the number of total racers in the class. Each main event is run in order from the """"highest"""" letter to the """"lowest"""". For example, if there are enough racers to make an E Main, the E Main is run first, then the D, the C, the B, the A, etc. The winner of the A Main is the winner for that class.

Large events (National and World Championships) will usually have what are called """"Triple A Mains"""". This is only for the top ten racers in each class, and they will all run three main events. In this case, your two best finishes count towards the final score, so if you win two races in the Triple A Main, you would be crowned the champion."
