any tracks near biloxi, mississippi? Looks right now that i'll be spending 4 months down there next spring/summer for schooling for my job. I looked and found 2 tracks, one an hour east, the other an hour west. Both tracks where 1/4 mile. Any thing closer thats 3/8 or 1/2? Trying to decide if i want to take the car down or just leave it here.

If the track is still open there is a dirt track just north of Gulfport,MS. It's just north of I-10 around where pass road inersects it. Can't remember the name or exactly where it is located, but it is a pretty good track. I believe it is close to 3/8 and pretty flat.

I went to the track in Hattiesburg in February and had a really great time. I had never driven on a track smaller than 3/8 and it was AWESOME! At least when I could get my motor to run. I hope they have that race again in 2003, because we are already making plans to make the 900 mile pull.

The 1/2 mile track in Mobile is asphalt. There is a dirt track in Mobile is called Mobile Dirt Trackin. They are not running mods from what i can tell. Its probably a little closer to a 3/8's.

I dont think your going to find a 3/8's track that are within an hour of Biloxi. If you go further north or east there are plenty of tracks that are bigger but of course the drive is longer. The folks in MS are really great and both the Hattiesburg track and the track in Pass Christian are decent tracks with friendly folks.

So c'mon down and mix it up, the racing is good. You can get torn up on a 3/8's or 1/4 it really depends on the track and the shoes. People here including myself would be willing to pitch in if your tryin to make the next heat or race. When months are you coming down for school ?

here is the website for the closest track:

best of luck
