NEWB at racing

I got invited to go up to Lebanon Valley Dragway with a friend, ok, hes the janitor at my high school, but hes mad cool. Drives a civic hatch with around 250 hp, his dd, and a crx with i think around 400 hp. Hes going up with his friends to tune the crx now that he has a turbo. Il be going up with a neon, srt-4, the crx, and an s4. Now, what should i look for? Jay already told me to go on the last yellow, and launch around 1500 rpms. anything else i should look for on my first time? im just doing this run to get a baseline, and see how i improve with mods. Thanks guys!!
