I've used them on the street... I just ran the pressures a couple of pounds low to let the carcass flex a little. They warmed up just fine and stuck great...

As a matter of fact, I'm fixing to go spoon on a set of my used DOTs to test ride the bike I'm building...

What model?

If they are true race tires you will need tire warmers to get them up to temp.

Also race tires are designed to run at much lower pressures than street tires.

Rule of thumb if you are out riding DOT Street tires like Diablo Corsa III, Pilot Powers and so on than take it to the track as you are asking for trouble.
