For those of you who live and race in the "real world" away from the left or right coast atmospheric conditions, here is a correction chart to get some idea of how fast you could go if you were able to race at sea level. Enjoy!

YES,If that chart is right that means I'm running a 14.2 at 97 mph at sea level.

That just made my whole night.I'm just this side of a 13 second car,at least on paper.
Heck if I raced in death valley I would run in the high 12's.
