Oil Change Thread

How often do you guys who drive HARD and go to the drag strip change your oils? Because I go a decent amount... almost 8k on this oil which is motor craft fully synthetic. I also drive my car in alot of stop and go traffic with pretty extreme conditions temperature wise. I have went to the strip three times on this oil. Made maybe 10 passes each time. I also upshift at 7500 rpm pretty frequently as in 5 times a week at least. I feel like it is beginning to get sluggish for some reason. I think its the oil. I just thought 8k was fine on these engines, but really, is it? Especially when driven hard in extreme conditions?
