My puncture was discovered on the track!
As Bill the Butcher said, "Whoopsie-Daisy!" (I spun at about 70-80mph).
After I pulled into the pits, drivers of much greater experience told me that it could be repaired with utmost confidence of durability (it was on the tread, and the local tire guy is very well-trusted). I have since done 150 more track miles on the tire, as well as plenty of street miles, and I'm confident all is well with this tire.
