In addition to the Finals event, a 3X competition was held as a 2019 season points cut off. Many of the competitors competed in both events in order to get a jump on points for next season. However, there were a few competitors that competed in the 3X that were not part of Finals. One notable score is from Scott Van Riper as he put up a score of 180 dB in the Extreme No Limit class during the 3X competition. There were a few windshields that were damaged during the event as well. On Friday evening, Neill Barber broke his front windshield and on Sunday Neill SHATTERED his side window. In Louisville, a Best of Show award was presented to Rob Kollar with Team Incriminator.
