Organizations may be penalized for violations of any of the rules and regulations specified in these Rules, Regulations, and Procedures by the Sweepstakes Advisor or the Sweepstakes Chairman. If the rule or regulation that was violated specifies that the offending organization shall have one of its entries withdrawn, that withdrawal shall be accomplished as follows:

  • If the infraction is attributable to an individual buggy that is scheduled to race that day or that school year, that buggy and its entry shall be withdrawn from that scheduled day of racing.
  • If the infraction is attributable to an individual buggy that is not scheduled to race that day or that school year, one of the buggy’s sponsoring organization’s entries shall be withdrawn from the next day of racing that it would have participated in, and the sponsoring organization shall select the entry to be withdrawn. (This applies even if an entry must be withdrawn from the first day of racing of the following school year.)
  • If the infraction is attributable to some part of an organization but not an individual buggy, one of that organization’s entries which has not yet run shall be withdrawn from the races that same day, or from that organization’s next scheduled day of racing, and the offending organization shall select the entry to be withdrawn. (This applies even if an entry must be withdrawn from the first day of racing of the following school year.)
  • If an offending organization is permitted to select the entry to be withdrawn, and that organization has entries in both the men’s races and the women’s races, the selection shall be made from the entries in the men’s races for that organization’s first infraction, from the entries in the women’s races for the second infraction, and so on, alternating for any additional infractions.
