Is this normal...

I pulled a 22' cuddy cabin boat to Waco,TX this weekend and got 12.1mpg doing 65-70 (under 2k rpm) and 13.3mpg doing 55-60 mph...the boat is about 5,000lbs and it was mostly flat land...Then I pulled a sprint car to Tyler,Tx (2500lbs) and got 12.5 running 70mph and the wing was off the car and in the bed of my truck. I thought it would at least got 14mpg pulling that sprint car.
