should be fine.. just dont burn the clutch (aka try to launch in 2nd gear or at redline on slicks and have the clutch not catch). If you burn it for a sec id probably quit for the night and drive normally for like a week and hopefully it will be fine.
if it catches with very little slip, there wont me much wear i would think.

I've never run there, but I'll assume that FedEx Field lot is asphalt, which isn't as grippy as either concrete or a prepared dragstrip starting line. Wheelspin should come about as easily as it does on a regular road under similar weather conditions.
Enough revs to get the tires spinning with the least possible slipping of the clutch (hopefully without getting into wheel hop) is probably going to put the least abuse on the clutch. That's what was working for me at a Pro-Touring event of similar nature last weekend (stockish 4.6L, 3.55's, 5MT, GY Asymmetrics, asphalt skidpad @ NJMP).
