Jump to: navigation, search

Portable wooden barricades shall be placed at several locations near the buggy course while freeroll events are in progress, to stop and/or redirect vehicular traffic when this traffic tries to approach the area of the buggy course. Warning signs which indicate that the road ahead is, or may be, closed, and that there will be flaggers ahead to stop and/or redirect traffic shall be placed near these barricades also. The barricades shall be put in place no later than one hour before races are scheduled to start on each day of Sweepstakes racing, or 30 minutes before the scheduled start of freeroll practice. They shall be removed within 15 minutes of either the end or the cancellation of the freeroll event for that day. The Safety Chairman, or anyone designated by that Chairman, shall determine if enough barricades are in place in order to have a Sweepstakes race. In order to provide the maximum amount of protection to the Sweepstakes race participants, barricades should be placed at least at the following locations:


• Margaret Morrison Street, at its intersection with Tech Street.

• Frew Street on the eastern side of its intersection with Tech Street.

• Schenley Drive, just east of its intersection with Tech Street.

• Circuit Road at its intersection with Schenley Drive, near the George Westinghouse Memorial Pond.

• Panther Hollow Road at its intersection with Schenley Drive, near the northern end of the Panther Hollow Bridge.

• Schenley Drive at the eastern end of the Schenley Bridge, near its intersection with Frew Street. The placement of the barricades at this location should be performed carefully. Some space should be left on the northern side of the bridge so that if a buggy failed to make the turn onto Frew Street it would have adequate room to drive across the bridge in the right-hand lane.

• Scaife Hall driveway at its intersection with Frew Street.


At the discretion of the Sweepstakes Chairman, the responsibility of obtaining, storing, and placing barricades in position for freeroll events may be delegated to one organization. The organization charged with this responsibility may not have to provide sweepers, flaggers, or course marshals for each day of Sweepstakes racing, at the discretion of the Sweepstakes Chairman. If the organization responsible for the barricades fails to provide them or remove them for any freeroll event, that organization shall be fined the amount of $25 for freeroll practice or $50.00 on Raceday.
