On the track, you press the brake pedal a lot harder so the pedal is about even with the gas. I usually blip the throttle too much when I downshift.

I think you would downshift in towards the middle of the braking zone. You have to scrub off some speed and lower the revs so you don't drop a gear and then mechanically overrev your engine.
I also agree that it is much easier to heel-toe at the track. The M3 has a very sensitive brake pedal which makes it hard for me to heel-toe smoothly on the street. I stopped trying and the only thing I do on the street is rev-match from time to time.
