Turner Motorsports say 1/2 quart (1 pint) above the fill line, but I don't know the source of their information, maybe its just something they recommend from their own experience.
Also, absolutely do NOT go on track without an upgraded oil pan baffle, or you risk oil starvation due to hard cornering. It only takes an instant, literally, to ruin the motor. Places like Korman Autoworks and Turner Motorsports sell them. It's not hard for a Do it Yourselfer, if you are careful, and take your time.
