If you run a low psi in say 265 70 17's in the back, does it affect the times after say, 200 feet? I know that low tire pressure will make better takeoffs, I just was thinking that if it is say 28, and you get a good start, isn't the high rolling resistance just messing your times up, or is it not that bad?

You are right...This is why I recommend starting at your regular tire pressure and then drop a few psi per run intil you find the sweetspot...Dont go lower than you need to to get a good launch.
