In a case where the starting driver is replaced during the race with another driver from the same team, the position the new driver finishes in will be awarded to the original driver. This holds for wagering on win odds and/or match-ups.

If more than two dead-heat, the stake is proportionally reduced accordingly.
For example, if you have $10 win bet at +1000 on a Player and it dead-heats with another player, then your betting stake is reduced to $5. You are returned $55 (ie: $5 win at +1000 = $50 + $5 stake returned = $55 returns to you).)
