There is a practical solution to solve this problem.

Just as NAQP & Sprint teams must "Register" before the event, any SO, M/S, M/2, or M/M entry seeking to submit a post-event log in hopes of winning something needs to "Register" their category status with the Sponsor up to a One Hour cutoff before the checkered flag starts.  If logs can be submitted electronically, so can registration be done.

Out of the Country?  Not a problem...have a Stateside pal do it for you after your on-air sked 1.1 hours before starting time.
