No question is a dumb question, I measure my tires at the pressure that they will be raced at. Racing pressures depend on the tires, are they racing tires or street tires used on a race car? They will be at a pressure that will suprise you.

Cool,
Here is what I used to do with my Hoosiers,
LF...12-15
RF...15-18
RR...16-19
LR...18-19
Of course you will want to experiment, and others will give you different numbers, so this is a good start but keep trying different pressures until you find what works best for you. Keep good notes, and if you can get one get a tire temp guage, so you can see how your setup is affecting the tire. also remember that as you put heat in the tire pressures go up. And a dry slick track, well, I'm not really sure where to go with pressures just be carfull not to pull the RR off. And sometimes slower is faster on dry slick.
