Advice on 6hr solo race

I just signed up for my first "endurance" MTB event. It's a 6hr race that I'm doing solo. Anyone ever done one? If so, what kind of pace and feeding routine did you adopt during the race? It's gonna be a 9am-3pm race. I plan on eating copious amounts of Clif bars and using a HammerGel Pereptuem endurance fuel all during the race. I haven't sat down to figure out what calorie output and intake I'll be looking at, I just know I dont want to bonk. I ride ~100-150miles/week on the road and maybe 10-15 miles on the MTB. I feel confident in my conditioning and I'm really looking forward to this type of racing.
The trail is easy enough such that cardio is going to be the biggest factor by far.

BTW, it's Dec 31 so I got about 10days to figure this out.
