Where do you want your tq and hp peaks to be in relation to where you are on the track? I am guessing TQ peak shortly after you come off the corner? Or would you want it sooner? Should you reach your hp peak before the end of the straight, or what? I am trying to put together a gear/cam combo for a 9:1 motor with cast iron intake and exhaust on a 1/2 mile track. This would be a good thing to know in general though I think.

you may want you're peak tq off the corner a bit to prevent wheelspin maybe but i always ran my motors about 500 rpm past peak hp before i let off for corner.
