I was going to take my car to this race this year but am wandering about my motor. I have a decent but small 355. I have it in a Camaro and the car handles real well. But I was wandering if I could even keep up with those cars. Does anyone have any info on this?

the street stocks that run here are some of the toughest around. they have BIG money motors and cars. it will be very tough to beat them.

Well I got a 408 and it's pushing 512 horse power is that enough to keep up with them? I got just about $7000 in that motor and if that aint enough I got another 408 thats pushing close to 640 horse power.. So if i come down there would i have enough to keep up?

That may get you through the heat(If you draw an early one) but Mooney will run the track black top to bottom. You had better know how to get it to the ground if your going to do any good.

Does it get slick at all? Or just does it get black and take rubber, with no dust? I have a 406 that will probably get put in.

How well do they handle their black flag down there? With that much money at stake I would think it could have an affect on how people drive, or bash.

o5racer,
there really isnt that much rough that goes on. the track is pretty wide and there is plenty of room to race. however, they say that they dont make judgement calls. in other words, they dont use the black flag much.

KC94 is going, but I will probably stay to protect my track points. Maybe next year. Later. P.S. Thats pretty cool about Moyer.
