There you go Mr Run, there is your answer.
Jen, in my country, no dog trails in double digits. They do good to go 3-4 mph unless they are running a deer or bear. And don't believe everything your Garmin tells you. Get in a four wheeler and try to drive through the woods at 10 mph the next time that you are just sitting there figuring. Then just imagine a dog going that fast and working a track at the same time.
But I am on your side now. If a dog backs another dog at any time they should just be scratched. I know that the Rules committee gave them 3 minutes this year but since dogs can't tell time or don't carry a stopwatch, it might as well be 1 minute. As has been pointed out by others, everyone will now just have to break their dogs from backing period. Apparantly, that is what the majority wants to see. Either get/train an independent to a fault dog (sorry, I just can't quit calling it a fault) or quit comp hunting. I guess that we all have until Jan 1st to decide which it will be.
