Need Help From The Experienced Drivers


Thinkin about running the bracket class in Bakersfield. My truck isn't fast, but has been consistent in the runs I've been making at Qualcomm. We are going down there this Friday again, so after I run another 5 or 6, I'll decide for sure. My question is, what's the best way to predict a 1/4 mile time. I have seen the tables and calculators online, but what are your guys' thoughts?

Passes On The 1/8th Mile

ET 60'
10.929 2.285
10.949 2.256
10.951 2.273
10.957 2.286
10.971 2.283
10.981 2.294
11.000 2.338

They all make sense, except the first. Nor sure how my 60' was higher but ET was lower. Now I just need to translate this into a 1/4 mile ET for running Brackets at Bakersfield. If I had to call a time right now to equate at the 1/4, I'd push a 10.95 in the 1/8th to a 1/4 mile time and run that. What do you guys think? Is it worth the $40 entry fee and maybe only make one pass, or should I just stick with the $30 at Qualcomm and gettin 6 or more passes per night?
