We are considering going to the Ice Bowl at Talladega in January. We have never run there before and would appreciate any info about the track we can get. (What gear you run, what lb springs, what the track surface and banking is like, etc.) Also for those that have been to the Ice Bowl, what is your opinion of the event. Would the trip be worth the 7 hr. drive we would have to make?

Thanks for any input!

i have been to tst about 5 times went firt time w/ 5:43 and and now run 5:67 thinking of trying 5:83 this year. the track usually gets real black w/ alot of rubber laid down and fairly smooth. starts out dry and slick but when the l/ms get done it'll be pretty good. it has pretty good banking the WoO turn 10.98 around it in april for a new track record,l/m i think 13 to 14secs and mods 16 to 17 not sure!
hope this helps maybe see ya there!
