Being perfectly honest, I don't think you're going to win. The Japanese cars have a better launch usually, and most Lexus cars are pretty quick. And correct me if I'm wrong, but that ES300 is a 3.3 liter 225 horse V6 stock. Even a turbo ng900/9-3 would have trouble.

It's fine to race it to see how you'll do, but don't bet money. I'm not trying to get down on you dude, I used to be in your shoes, I knew less than nothing about cars. Fortunately I fell in with some good racers and mechanics, so I've learned a lot. That's why I suggest racing anyway just to see what happens. If you get in with the racing crowd, you'll start picking stuff up fast. A year ago all I could do was change a tire. Now I'm doing most of my own upgrades, wiring, repairs, etc. Give it some time, run some races, but don't bet money, you'll regret it, and if you know you're going to race someone, research their type of car, that way you know what you're up against.
