APSA RECORD PROCEDUERS
Running a National Class Record or breaking into the Top Ten of a particular class is a prestigious award and should be treated as such. All runs must be backed up by corresponding time slips and should be brought to the attention of an APSA state technical inspector or director of ASAP. The vehicle must be checked and weighed upon running the record by an APSA delegate, committee member or official. It is the responsibility of the driver, owner or crew to bring this to the attention of the APSA official else the record will not be recognized.
Any vehicle which has suspicion concerning the validity of the run or of the car in question may be refused acknowledgment for that pass or even dismissal or suspension from APSA and associated events at the discretion of the committee.
A backup run within 3% of the run in question is required to enter the official APSA Top Ten. A further backup run is required annually to keep the time valid within the Top Ten listing.
If two or more contestants tie for the fastest and quickest time to the hundredth of a mph/sec the first car to post the time shall be deemed with the record but both cars and owner’s names will appear in the Top Ten listing at the same rank.
