Default OIL PSI AT END OF 1/4 MILE

LAST PASS I LOOKED DOWN AT THE OIL PSI GAUGE AND AT FULL THROTTLE IT WAS 10-20 PSI WHEN I LEFT OFF THE THROTTLE IT WAS BOUNCING AROUND.I THEN TURNED THE MOTOR OFF WAITED ABOUT 10 MINUTES,STARTED IT BACK UP PSI WAS 50 PSI,I THEN CHECKED THE OIL IT WAS LOW SO I ADDED 2 QUARTS RACED IT AGAIN AND THE SAMETHING HAPPENED.I THEN PARKED THE CAR.DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS OR IS THIS NORMAL,PSI IS USALLY 60-70 PSI AT IDLE.

If I just Changed the Oil 10 Passes ago?And you had to ADD 2QTS to get Oil Pressure,Pull off the Pan,and You will More than Likely find the Pump Pick-Up laying in the Pan!
Or,Maybe Check the FILTER for FINDS?
