First you need to estimate acceleration, you can do this by using the average acceleration given as:

a=Final Velocity / Time , must convert MPH into m/s

then distance = 0.5 * a * time^2

example

a=26.82 m/s / 7.78s= 3.44 m/s^2

distance= 0.5 * 3.44 * 7.78^2 = 104 meters = 341 feet

of course this assumes no wheel spin and a standing start!

Unfortunately this is the best you can do with the information you have and it maybe way off depending on the actual circumstances.
