An Eliminator event follows the same rules and regulations as a Race event. You can score Takedowns, use Aftertouch and burn up your Boost as normal. The difference is that instead of two laps, you race in five. When the racer in second-to-last place crosses the finish line, the racer behind him is 'Eliminated' (blown up) and is knocked out of the race. This continues until one racer is left still driving, and gets the Gold. However, if you are eliminated as the 3/3 racer or the 2/2 racer, you will get a Bronze or Silver medal (respectively).
