Drag racing time conversion

We only have 1000' tracks where I live and was wondering if anyone could give me an idea what my time would be in the quarter based on my time and speed. I ran a 10.58@103 mph

I come up with a 13.23

1/4 mile is 1320'

1000' is 75% of 1320

Took your time times 25% or 1.25

No math genius, but should be close.

You're probably looking at a 12.5 ish around 115 mph. My 1000 ft was 10.9, ( i don't have the mph) but i ran a 13.01 at 111 mph stock.

conversion factor

I run a bracket car at the strip, I always divide your 1/4 mile et by your 1000ft time,13.01 divided by 10.90= 1.193. next run if your on the brakes you can figure out what you would have ran had you not dumped at the end. once you have a factor for your car it remains pretty accurate. hope this helps.

He's traveling at a much higher velocity at 1000' than the first part or half of the track so he would cover the last 320' much faster.

Best estimate is to figure out his estimated trap speed unless we know his rate of change in velocity for the last 320' which we don't. So its all a guess really.

I would think he would pick up another 8-9mph so that leaves him at 111-112mph which could be good for 12.9s +\-0.1s
