Possible screwed half shafts?

I took my car out to the track for the first time a while back, had a lot of fun. The only problem was the tire hop that i experienced on almost every run, some of it was pretty extensive. on the way home from the drags the car drove perfect but as of lately seems to have some vibration coming from rear starting at about 70 mph...any idea what this might be? maybe i'm just being anal idk...
Thanks!

Garage
it could be a CV cage on the half shaft. GET OUT OF IT if you start hopping hard. you WILL break something if you haven't already. at the least get some drag bags

Or you could have flung a wheel weight.

Check under the car see if everything is in order, and check the torque on the wheels.

after a day at the track your tires have probably seen more action than in 6 months of st driving- they may just be out of balance due to wear

That's what I was thinking, or possibly flat spotted.
