Have I been charged with reckless driving, and what do I do now?

You stated that you received "a ticket" (singular). A law enforcement officer can only issue one ticket per violation. In other words, if you were issued only one ticket, there is only one charge. See, Rule 19, Alabama Rules of Judicial Administration.
Insofar as the opportunity to "keep this off my record" that depends on whether or not you are convicted. If you plead guilty or are found guilty, the U.T.T.C. will be transmitted to the ALEA and the violation, to include the "points" on your MVR for a period of two years. Speeding 86 mph in a 55 zone is a 5 point violation. Your best course of action is to seek the legal services of a qualified criminal defense attorney to assist you in this matter.
