Calcutta

The Calcutta takes place on Saturday night after Day 1 of competition. Teams are auctioned off to raise money for the non-profit Eagle Mount. Spectators and participants essentially "buy" a team(s) based on the results posted from Day 1 in expectations of the team being a top three finisher for Day 2 results (qualifying times for the Calcutta will be based on the top three results from Day 2, not cumulative times from the weekend).  Once a team is bid on, the winning bidder can win back part of the Calcutta money based on how the team performs on Sunday. All money raised during the Calcutta is shared between Eagle Mount and the winning bidders for the top three fastest teams for each division on Sunday's performance. 


Competition Location:

The 2019 Montana Classic will be held at the WB Ranch Company.
