You: So, did you have a radar gun to determine my speed?
Cop: Ugh no, I was pacing you.
You: I see, so when was the last time you had the speedometer in your car calibrated?
Cop: Uhh...it's not a patrol car. The speedometer wasn't calibrated. But I'm pretty sure you were doing 90MPH.
Judge: Case dismissed.

Hopefully, that's what will happen. But it sounds like you have a pretty good case. Also, if you have a clean driving record the judge will take that into consideration as well. The cop knows he was guesstimating you speed, so most likely he won't bother showing up for this.
