Remember the driver's meeting info. Only one record can be set per day. You
may backup the previous day's record, then qualify for a new record to be

PS - at the recent World Finals we were able to incorporate return(backup)
record runs at the entrant's request due to the lack of entries (75 vrs.
300+ at Speedweek)
