I have a question about what tires to use for drag racing. if I drive with my front tires completely bald at 28psi, will they function like slicks, or should I just run with new tires inflated to spec?

no
slicks are not only usually bigger and have more tread, they are EXTREMELY stickey compared to regualr tires

Yeah the lack of tread is not what makes slicks so sticky, it's the compound the rubber is made out of. Your regular tires when bald will be useless when it comes to traction.
