Track day on 5w-20 oil...

I'm heading to the track pretty soon, and I'm wondering if a day at the track would be a concern with 5w-20 oil in my car. (The dealership screwed up and put 5w-20 in). I'm guessing that it wouldn't be a big deal, but I would appreciate some feedback...especially if you guys have done this.

Cheers
