# Possession of trackball

I know this might be a dumb question, but i am unsure of it.

Can we drive under the overpass, with the trackball in possession?

Not if you want to score trackball points.

(emphasis mine)
You will still get the robot points, but why settle for two points when you can have four?

Wait I don’t understand, how can you get 4 points?

The robot crossing the finish line counts for 2 points, while the trackball crossing the finish line counts for two points separately. If you can do both – driving the robot to the line, releasing the trackball across the line, and then driving the robot across the line, you’ll score 4 points.

**<G06> **During the TELEOPERATED PERIOD, a ROBOT will earn 2 points each time it CROSSES
its FINISH LINE.

<G10> Each TRACKBALL that has CROSSED its own FINISH LINE while not in contact with a
ROBOT of the same ALLIANCE will earn 2 points. A TRACKBALL that has CROSSED its
own FINISH LINE which contacts ROBOTS of both ALLIANCES while CROSSING will earn
2 points.

2 for the robot and 2 for the ball. Possessing the ball takes away 2 unless you are hurdling. See Section 7.3.3 for scoring details.
