I remember that very well, Randy and that's what appears to be happening in this shot. 115 laps on the board and the time isaround 2 seconds off what the top qualifiers would have turned at the time.

I also remember some races when many of the light bulbs were burned out. It was like trying to read Morse code. Oh man! Dot-dot-dash is leading again!

Seriously, as a kid, I do remember following "time trials". I'm not sure where I bought into the single word "qualifying". Isn't each car on the track qualified to be there? Time trials is far more descriptive of that give it all ya got lap.
