Well, if you're in doubt ask about the calibration of the scale. When was it last checked? Is the calibration certified? The calibration certificate should be no more than one year old. Check that the serial number on cal cert. matches the serial number of the scale.
Take a quick photo of the cert and call and confirm with the agency who supposedly performed the calibration that they actually performed the calibration. If they say yes then ask when and confirm other details. The date they provide should match the certificate if not the certificate has been altered or forged.
The track should have calibration paperwork for their scale on file and be willing to provide it upon request. If they show you the cal sticker and say it's good ask for the cal certificate. There's a big difference between a cal sticker and a calibration certificate.
Calibration stickers are easily forged, calibration certificates, not so much.
The cal date and scale serial number on the certificate should match the calibration sticker on the scale and, of course, the serial number should match the scale itself. The certificate should provide all the details of the calibration. The certificate backs up the validity of the cal sticker. The cal sticker usually only shows the scale serial number, cal date and cal due date.
If they can't or won't provide the cal certificate for their scale and allow you to verify that's a major red flag.
That seems way lighter than I'd expect, the front and rear sway bars don't amount to 200lbs. What do your wheels and tires weigh? Aluminum block?
Mine weighed 3700 dead without me on a scrapyard scale, that was with the iron block P
