The top Outdoor Rewards Card team at each event will each receive $50.00 on their Rewards Card that can be redeemed at BASS PRO SHOP and will receive one point for their finish regardless of event placing. The second Outdoor Rewards Card holder team will receive two points for their finish and so forth. Anglers can participate in as many qualifying events as they wish utilizing only their top five events.
