Is anybody here going to Hattiesburg, MS on Feb. 1 & 2 ? I want to make the trip, but I don't know what gear to take. Anyone who can help would be greatly appreciated.

I HAVE BEEN OVER THERE QUITE A FEW TIMES AND I RUN A 5:67 OR A 5.83 I WON A RACE OVER THERE W/ THE 5:83 I ALSO RUN A BIT SMALLER ENGINES THAN EVERYONE ELSE SO YOU MAY WANNA TAKE A 5:43. THE TRACK IS VERY NARROW ALTHOUGH I HEARD THEY HAVE BEEN WORKING ON WIDENING IT. YOU CAN'T ASK FOR BETTER FOLKS THE FLAGMAN AND THE OWNERS ARE REAL NICE PEOPLE AND RACERS THEMSELVES SO THEY TRY HARD TO TAKE CARE OF YOU.

Thanks, G17... I've never raced out of state before, so this is going to be quite an experience. What kind of RPM do you turn there? I like to run about 7 to 7200 on my good 355's.

Thanks again,
Greggie

i usually turn about 6800 but i am usualy real easy on the gas over because it gets so slick on a normal night. the track has set idle since sep. 29 so i don't know what to expect. the first time i went over there last year the track was rough.
