Kelly Clarkson vs. Amy Schumer and Bindi Irwin vs. Chrissy Metz was the first episode of Celebrity Family Feud in the 2017 season. It aired on June 11, 2017 on ABC Television Network. The tournament is expected to take place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
The episode concludes with the grand final on June 15, 2017, the day before when usual IndyCar race weekends begin (expect for the Indy 500). Instead of three sets, the event opted to have three laps around Le Mans race track and the racer with the two fastest laps wins. If either Pee Saderd, Simon Pagenaud, Scott Dixon, Mikhail Aleshin or Gilles Marini qualify for the final, the final was held Thursday night. The eventual tournament champion Mikhail Aleshin was left, since Saderd, Pagenaud, Dixon and Marini were first round losers. BATC scheduled the third and fourth rounds to be a best of three sets, and the quarterfinals, semifinals and final in a best of three laps. However, due to Sébastien Bourdais suffering injuries at the Indy 500, the final originally would be held Friday but instead will be held Thursday at Le Mans. After the second round, it will take place at the 2017 24 Hours of Le Mans in Le Mans, France and tennis occurs in the third and fourth rounds, and will turn into motorsport racing at Le Mans after the fourth round.
1Saderd chose to participate in the event because he opted to defend his title from Garrett Morris vs. Alfonso Ribeiro and Todd Chrisley vs. Sara Evans instead of praying for Pumpuang. Saderd opted to not wear a bandana and instead wear sports glasses he usually uses when getting out on court because wearing a bandana for the whole race might affect him in the second episode. After the entry list for Le Mans was announced, originally Saderd will represent Russia for the remainder of his career until พี สะเดิด ชุดที่ 10 comes out in his birth country Thailand. It was revealed after Takuma Sato won the 2017 Indianapolis 500, Saderd will play for Russia until the end of his music career.
2Aleshin plays for Poland in the tournament and represents Russia in the event, and Dixon plays for Ukraine in the tournament and will represent New Zealand in the event.
3Since Charlie Kimball withdrew from the tournament due to his Texas car with mechanical issues, lucky loser Lumplern Wongsakorn will participate instead.
Additionally, Saderd and the two full-time IndyCar drivers (Sébastien Bourdais will miss Le Mans due to injuries from the Indy 500), will miss June 4 testing due to Detroit.
The reigning BATC Cup champion from the 2017 Rolex 24 at Daytona was Pee Saderd. He knocked out 2016 IndyCar Series champion Simon Pagenaud, 2 laps to love, to put the Russian's win-loss record to 32-2. All 8 men in the quarterfinals (Rahal, Hinchcliffe, Pagenaud, Power, Ohno, Castroneves, Saderd and Mathison) were first round losers.

Due to Sébastien Bourdais' injuries that shortened his season at the Indy 500, the seedings will remain top 16 plus defending champion from the last episode entering a certain race (expect July 2 and July 30) for Thai Festivals where it will be seedings from the Math Open. In this case, Sébastien Bourdais won't be replaced by Bowser and Beartic keeps their seeding; instead Bourdais and Beartic will remain seeded. Also, due to Bourdais' injury, the defending champion will not qualify automatically for seedings and the rule will be restored in the 2018 season.
