I had basically the same setup last year and ended up throwing a rod.I went to a 8qt. pan this year and haven't had any problems. (knock on wood)

Go to the Kevko Racing Oilpan website and you will see a great product for circle track racing. Sure there are cheaper units out there,but the quality and workmanship on those cheaper pans is like the price....cheap.
Spend a few more bucks on a pan and pick up and not worry about your oil supply to the motor.
