sounds like 3rd gear is shot in transmission.if first and second pulled fine than thats it 3rd gear gone. may feel a slow or a delay in reverse also but with high stall converters little bit hard to tell if delay is there.

I had the same no 3rd feeling the last pass of last year. Sure enough tore tranny down and 3rd gear was gone. I drove the car to car wash and gas station after getting home from track and it seemed to be fine but I guess I wasn't shifting at 7500 then either!

naw reverse is fine as long as ur going normal speed it pulls real hard in 3rd its just when u going down the track its feels like its slipping so u think 3rd is gone?

Higher stall = more heat. What was your trans temp on that pass? I've heard that excessive heat is public enemy #1 to an auto trans.
