Thank you for the advice @MarkDDrew, yours matched up with my instructors advice (I emailed him the same day I wrote the post). I started with OEM tire pressures and would check and adjust back to 38F/35R after each session. After the first session, the fronts had jumped to 55 psi. The track was great fun and an amazing time.

Hello all, The SCCA was nice enough to grant me a spot for their "Helmets off to Heroes" Veterans day event this Sunday. It is an HPDE event. I am super excited about this. If anyone has ran this track, please advise me about it. I will be on Bridgestone Potenza 215/45/R17 RE71Rs that I normally autocross on. The tires are new, only used for one event so far (and that was in the rain). My concerns are tire pressure for track (I am thinking higher then autocross, near stock values due to heat), brake fade due to boiling of the brake fluid, and inexperience on this track. Any advice
So i just switched from 205/45R17 to 215/45R17 for autox (RE71Rs). I ran low pressure in my front tires, about 26 psi, previously for grip. I ran 35 in my rears. This allowed me to brake before a courner, shift weight to the front, gas through the corner and kinda "bounce" my.rear around it. Issues being melting the front tires. Wondering what PSI anyone else runs? I will be taking a mister to cool tires between runs (have a SCCA run on Sun). Pic is of my old tires after track time.
