Sounds like your slide rails were heating up, or your clutches came out of alignment, from stress of racing. Could be a lot of things like engine temp even.

Could also be that after that many passes your clutches got heat soaked, that would slow you down.

Check your rings.   I burnt the chrome off my rings at the end of the season.  I went from winning to losing that quick.  Usually when you hit a dead spot it is rings.   Worth a try.
