MUD RACE TOMORROW!! NEED ADVICE!!

Alright guys, I need some advice. I am going to a mud fest tomorrow and they are going to be having truck races, and the winner gets $500. So I'm really wanting to do good. So any and all advice y'all have is appreciated. I'm currently running the spartan and I turned it down to the 250 tune. Any idea if this would be a good tune to run? And my biggest concern is the start of the race. I dont want to just floor it and sit there and spin the tires, but I dont want to go too easy and get whooped. Should I run it in 4low, or 4high? And should I start in Drive, or should I start out in 2nd or 3rd? Thanks for the help guys!!!

theirs more traction on the sides of the pit. sawing the front tires and high tire speed to keep the lugs clean is the ticket... but once again diesel trucks weigh to much for mud play so good luck.
