Need some advice on how to warm up the tires at the track w/a clutch.

I own a 08 GT 500 and want to take it to the track to see what it will do in the 1/4 mile. I've never run the 1/4 mile and don't really race on the street either, but just want to see what I can make it do in the 1/4. I'm sure the car is faster then what I could drive it. This is for a stock 500 w/stock tires.

My problem is, how does one do a burn out before the run (with a clutched car) to warm up the tires?

Also, what are the guestimates on time and speed for a non-experienced driver in a stock GT 500

Not too difficult to do a burn out with this car, even bone stock. First, turn traction control off. Put it in first and rev up to 3500, let clutch out. Nice burn out!!!!! This car's power is more than the rearend can handle. Anyone can do a burn out in this car.
