    Check the tire carefully for rubbing

    Check the tire pressure

    If those are okay, you might have a dragging brake caliper...DO NOT touch the caliper to see if it's hot!!! You will be very sorry. Have a mechanic use a "pyrometer" to test the temperature of the four brake rotors after a hard run to see if one is overheating. Brake pads stink when they are overheated.
