Rocker pedestal repair on cast head?

After running a new personal best first run out. I broke my rocker pedestal. Then I Found some more disturbing carnage. aft and middle rocker pedestals are cracked. Strangely the fwd rocker is the one that broke. Think this is something I should try to tig repair on the car? Or is that a bad idea because it's iron? And ideas?

This is the middle, it's not so bad.



The aft is the bad one.




This low rpm 3.8 went 10.24@133mph @ 6200 rpm with a 26" tire. Assuming I can fix the rocker pedestals. I plan on going to a 28" tire to lower the rpms.

Thanks.
