Just started thinking about this this morning, do you think/know if they will install tires at Laguna Seca? I know they will have tires, more than likely cheaper than locally, but how do I get them installed up there? Think I should wait for the race or go ahead and get them locally?
Most of them WILL install them there for you. Sometimes it is cheaper to get them there. If you get them on sunday, they might be cheaper yet. Most vendors want to get rid of product ASAP and not have to drag it back to their shops.

Not sure about that race weekend but most I've been to they didn't carry the street tires with them because they just don't want to use the space that could be used by the race tires. Course if you run the race compounds then that isn't an issue and you can purchase and get them mounted. As for having the street models most will take a set with your name on it if you are going to purchase them. Mounting shouldn't be an issue. If they get busy then you can just leave them there or find out when their slack time is.
