Hey all I just moved down to Biloxi from Pittsburgh. Hattiesburg seems like the closest track to me. I was wondering how the racing and everything is ? Thanks.

Too be honest... If i was looking for racing in Mississippi i would go to these tracks:
1. Whynot Motorsports Park Meridian, Ms
2. Greenville Speedway Greenville, Ms
3. Columbus Speedway Columbus, Ms
4. Magnolia Speedway Columbus, Ms
5. Central Mississippi Speedway, Ms
6. Jackson Speedway Byram, Ms
7. Pike County Speedway
8. Hattisburg Speedway

Those are the places in Mississippi to go to in that order by my opinion. Also down your way you could prolly hit a couple Louisiana tracks like Ark-La-tex in vivian, La for the Pelican 100 with 10,000 to win Super Late Models. Thats my view, Chase

the closeist one on besides hattiesburg on that list is 2 1/2 hours from him and most 4 hours away. I think he was asking about southern speedway in hattiesburg. Hattiesburg is an old track that you can go to and get your racing fix, but don't expect to much. Stands are run down and place looks like it is 40 years old but you can still enjoy the racing there as I have just about everywhere I have been,

I like H'burg... Kind of a simple little track. Reminds me of true grassroots racing. Not trying to be the biggest track around but you're going to see some good door to door racing with some rubbing and a few bump & runs here and there. Kind of hard for out of towners to get there on Fri nights... but worth it if you like real tight short track racing. A decent variety of classes with a few specials through the year. Just bring some cushions to sit on... but most people do that at any track (no big deal).

Yeah I plan on attending Pike County, Columbus, Jackson, Whynot, Baton Rouge and other for specials, but I figured Hattiesburg would work as a weekly Friday night track since I can't attend Lernerville anymore. What is car count typically like ?

Wow, not to be a bummer but going from Lernerville and now to Hattiesburg! That is just brutal.

Ohhh trust me I know. Not to knock any drivers here, but Im leaving Hess, Satterlee, Geisler, Miley, Lynch, Holtgraver, Ellenberger, and others. I really wish I could be at Whynot weekly, but 2hrs 30mins is a long way for a regular show.

There is not a weekly show anywhere in the entire south that will compare to what you are used to. I assume you are only a sprint fan (as I was) so it will help if you learn to like late models. Luckily, we do have some excellent late model racing around here if you hit the special events. As you probably already know, there is no 410 racing around here, and only some 360 special events. Hopefully you will enjoy and won't want to move back home.

About the only sprints you'll get to see close to your new home will be the WoO at Pike County and the Cajun Sprinters.

Cajuns are 360's and carbureted which use to be an automatic turn off for me... but these guys normally put on a decent race with a lot of passing back and forth. They are local guys you get to watch at almost every track within a couple hundred miles of you... They normally have about 20 cars per event give or take a few. They are getting the schedule on the website now... more dates to be added. http://www.cajunsprintersassociation.org/

USCS sometimes has a 360 sprint show within decent distance but this years southern thunder schedule doesn't look like it will get very far to the south this year. You can catch the Tampa Bay Area Rasing Association TBARA sprints at Mobile and 5 Flags in Pensacola if you like them on asphalt July 8-9. Other than that you can travel and see some ASCS 360 shows around the Houston/Beaumont, TX areas.

Have fun!
