Post Gravel roads - ABS or no ABS?

Trying to figure out what stops me faster on gravel covered dirt roads since I've been rallying around on some quarry and farm roads lately. I need a way to stop and somehow I don't think that ABS is the most efficient way to stop.

Now before anyone says anything about locking up the brakes and such, I have a lot more experience with cars that don't have ABS then with (though I know enough to hold the brake to the floor in an ABS car instead of pumping it).

Now I would think that no ABS would stop me faster because it would create a plowing effect rather then skimming across the top of loose gravel. Anyone know? Maybe the rallycrossers out there can answer this one for me.
