It unzips to become "short-sleeve"?

I honestly don't know whether or not it would be good enough to get you on the track. But another question, just as important, if not moreso, is, would you trust it to protect you, if you took a nasty spill at the track?

For a parade lap yeah, but for a full day more than likely not. But I am not 90% sure. If it doesn't zip to any pants then for sure it won't pass

A few better options if you are going used...

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Teknic-Leath...andise&vxp=mtr

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Men-Alpinest...andise&vxp=mtr

Nice new one really discounted

http://stores.sportbiketrackgear.com/Detail.bok?no=4317

Hit up the vendors here with a call and see if they have any closeouts in your size. Better than buying online and you can try it on.

He's asking about the drag strip. Different rules.
