Angry Problem with HP575

Last weekend, while running in a poker run one of my 575's started backfiring and missing above 4500 rpm. The next day it ran perfect. Anyone have any experience or suggestions regarding this problem? Thanks....

Wet distributor? It would dry out overnight in the heat of the engine room.
