Try something like this:
19rf, 16rr, 14lf, 14lr. Have someone watch your car to make sure the rf doesn't roll under too far. Adjust from there.

I run American Racers and put 15lbs. in right front with no problems (high banked, dry slick and ROUGH!). Our local track has a few shows where the mod's (and us Factory Stock guys) can run the Hoosiers. I know a few of them and they don't run more than 15 in the rf. As atomicpunk posted, have someone be looking at it as you run. The other way is to look at the rf after a race, and see where the dirt line is. If it is over the lettering on the tire, start adding a pound at a time until it is below the lettering. And of course you are hoping during all of this that you don't have a flat up there. Race on.

if it ain't fun, then don't run

Take a piece of chalk and mark the outside of the right side tires with a straight line from the tread down to the wheel. Run it about 5 laps and check to see how far it's rolling. With 27.5"x8" RC4s, I run about 13LF, 19RF, 13LR and 13-14RR. At 17 in the RF (11 on the RR) it would roll onto the side of the tire all the way down to the wheel!!
