Default Transmission leak when sitting for a while

My car has been parked for 5 weeks and has leaked out about a five inch circle of fluid . While racing every weekend it doesn't leak a drop. It's a powerglide with jw bell, and a thick blue moroso rubber gasket. It does this every year, but runs flawless at the track. Anyone else have this problem? Thanks

Mine does the same, I'm told the convertor is draining.

look at your shift shaft seal. When it stands the converter leaks back, filling the trans above the pan level.

Front seal needs replaced, when It sits it dries out and shrinks, but when its run it swells back up and seals, I have had this before
