It's a track you absolutely need to show the utmost respect to, otherwise you're in a lot of trouble.
Well I completely agree with that.

OP, Make sure you have good instruction, take your time and drive well within your envelope. Also, have a blast.
JBass - what about BMW CCA, do they still run up there? I generally agree with your assessment of NASA, but I think its actually pretty good for beginners given they are really stepping up the safety piece this year wrt the yellow flag dismissals and just generally emphasizing it more. I always thought of it as pretty good for HPDE1, awful for 2 and then pretty good for 3+. The problem with 2 is that you're on track with the 1's and there are like 40+ cars on a very small track. IIRC, no cars lost so far this year in HPDE 1/2...
