Sorry if it's been asked before but I'm going to the drag strip for the first time ever in a few weeks and just had a question.

Now I know some or all drag strips have a box before you line up so you can warm up your tires by burning out or so.

Question is does it really help? Should I do it? Don't you warm the tires by riding around for a bit anyways? I watched videos on how to burn out as I've never done it myself, looks easy enough.

Hold both clutch and front brake in, rev to about 8000 and drop the clutch while pressing down on the front forks.

Now I saw one guy doing it in first while another said to do it in second.
