I guess filling in 3-5 psi more is ok considering an under-inflated tire can slow you down. Slight over-inflation reduces contact area so any unnecessary traction is reduced at least to some extent.

true i was thinking of the same thing but wont over inflating it spoil his launch.that will make him lose tractiion while launching.

Well, my 2cents, tyre pressure is dependent on how much power your car is generating, launch technique, ambient temperature while fillup and during the drag day and ofcos the profile and make of the tyre. If you could furnish these details I should be able to recommend the ~ ideal tyre pressure...
