VCS Pac-Man 5-minute challenge

Back in 1982, the department store Boscov's held some Atari VCS contests, one being for Pac-Man.  Entrants had 2 attempts to score as much as possible in 5-minute long games.  After a few attempts, I got a 5,200, which ranks as the 3rd-highest, according to this article.  I'm assuming this contest was on game 1 with difficulty B.  I used this free PC app to time my efforts.
Pretty impressive that someone nearly cracked 8k on this.
