A couple of thoughts,
Clean out everything from inside your car and trunk that can fly around.
Add a couple of psi to your tires, on hard corners they will want to roll onto the sidewall, the fronts will need a little more than the rears because of all of the weight over them.
Make sure you have good clean brake fluid and at least 50% of your pads left, you will use them up much faster than you expect to.
Also show up with a full tank of gas, it goes fast too.
Leave traction control on, you want to be able to drive your car home at the end of the day.
Don't forget to pay attention to the flaggers around the track, it's easy to get caught up in the experience and forget to look up.
Biggest thing is to have fun.

Update:

Did the Track day lite/heavy. 2 sessions in each class. Lite is lead and follow and heavy you were set free with passing zones.
I had the best time ever!
It was a blast taking the car out to the track and pushing boundries and taking corners at 70mph.
The track was incredible too. 2.75miles.
Highly recommend.
Now time for new brake/rotors plus tires.
