Got it.
The computer would not allow registration until the results of the 2nd race day were up. Of course there have been computer errors before (kid was licensed at age 8 by error when min age was 9).

1st race day was TT only. that counted as a race day.
2nd race day was track stand omnium. That was 10 days before and counted as the 2nd race day and a mass start event.
Computer opened up Collegiate Nats registration.
This was all automatic. There was no request for any Cat 4 upgrade. Cat 1 may be upgraded to a Track Cat 2 by asking and approval (as I recall).
