Atco is a fantastic track. Track prep is fantastic. When I want to get a serious time, that's where I'll go. When I want to go somewhere closer to just romp on the car and race some people, I'll go to E-town.11.03 @ 126.6 mph by Cars.com
This is on a great track (Byron Dragway) in Illinois.
Need to have a great track with great weather (below sea level DA) to get times like that.
I'm sure it can be done at a track like ATCO once temps cool off again, too hot now, at least in most of the country.
I did an 11.32 @ 126 but temps were 81 degrees and had a DA of 1670 feet, and I was starting in 2nd gear on the 8 speed auto. This was also my first time dragging the Hellcat at the dragstrip, and came on my 3rd and final run as the track closed after on older Mustang with Nos blew his engine and splattered oil all over the track.
I'm sure I can get into the 11.0's as well if I had a sea level DA and a few more passes under my belt. I went from a 11.5 very first time, to 11.4, to 11.32. I was in the staging lines next up going for an 11.2 in that warm weather, when the Mustang's engine blew.
But by the time weather cools off here enough to get below sea level DA's (probably October), I won't be completely stock anymore.

And you're absolutely right about the heat and the DA. It makes such a huge difference, especially on supercharged cars, I could hardly believe it. I lost 7 mph between a 64 degree day and an 82 degree day with humidity.
On the street low 11's 123-125mph with drag radials. Seen several people do this, very common.Whats the fastest "as delivered" quarter times on pump gas so far?
