Weighted Lottery

Beginning in 2014, the lottery selection process began to use a new, weighted formula, increasing the odds of winning a lottery place in the race, based on the number of consecutive times you have applied. This means that applicants with consecutive unsuccessful lottery applications will have an increased chance of being selected.

Accumulated lottery weights will reset to zero when an applicant gains entry to the race, or when an applicant skips a year when applying for the lottery.

*Petitioners and earned race spots are not eligible for priority status.
