The following procedures and rules shall apply to buggy drivers during freeroll practice sessions:


No driver shall be permitted to participate in a freeroll practice unless he or she complies with all of the following requirements:


• He or she has walked the buggy course earlier that same day. Each driver must check in with the Assistant Sweepstakes Chairman, or anyone designated by that Chairman, immediately before or after they walk the course. Drivers are only permitted to walk the course BEFORE a freeroll practice session starts.

• He or she has previously successfully completed a braking capability test in the buggy that he or she will be driving in that freeroll practice.

• He or she has previously successfully completed a field of vision test in the buggy that he or she will be driving in that freeroll practice.

• He or she has previously become familiar with the operation of the buggy that he or she will be driving in that freeroll practice by being pushed around (on sidewalks, in parking lots, etc.) in that same buggy.

• He or she has either attended all of the driver education meetings that have been held that school year, or has reviewed the content of those meetings with someone designated by the Sweepstakes Chairman.


Each driver is encouraged to complete a drop brake test before he or she participates in a freeroll practice session in the buggy that he or she will be driving at that session. This test does not have to be observed by the Safety Chairman provided that the buggy in question completed a drop brake test earlier that same day with some other driver. The purpose of this test is to ensure that the buggy’s braking system is both properly adjusted for the current driver and is in proper working order.
