Question Need Help on Drag Strip

Ok I have been talking to a friend that goes to the local Drag Strip he has a Kick Ass Buick Regal... anyway he talked me into go to the drag strip, but i have never in my life race on a drag strip.. so

What do i need to know about the tree? and how i know I'm line up right?

How should i lunch? What RPM should i have it? Should i just dump the clutch?

Or should i just take off normal like a daily driver. I Still have the stock clutch so I'm guessing dumping is out of the question, just need to know I will change the clutch to CM Stage 4 with fidanza Fly, but i won't have the clutch by then.

the other things is when should i shift?

1 Gear = 6,000 RPM to
2 Gear = 6,000 RPM to
3 Gear = 6,000 RPM to
4 Gear = 6,000 RPM to
5 Gear = 6,000 RPM to
6 Gear = Opps not SVT

And in-experience Drag Racer
