Remember that the original purpose of NTs was to prepare folks for
National Competition. That includes procedures, for sure... but also
the type of courses that are common. I don't want to get back into the
"speed creep" thread of last fall, but I didn't see anything unusual at
Meridian considering the typical National (and some Divisional)

I did get into 3rd 4 times on Sunday, though. Sure could use another
500 rpm out of the SOHC motor. <G>
