Like everyone has said , ride safe but push it a bit. Assuming you are in the beginer class you can usually gain some positions going into the corners. Just stay on the gas a little longer going in and then brake hard (but smooth) power through the corner if you can. Going down the straights its bike against bike but in the corners its all rider. Don't try to pass on big jumps you can't accelerate in the air.
Don't worry about it. Just stay calm (almost impossible) and have a blast. There is no high like the first race.

yes, don't try what you didn't do in practice. You are more likely to crash ( know from experience). And it's amazing, but most the time when racing you do things by instinct. You may not even be thinking about it, then next thing you know you just hit a jump for the first time or something. Ride smart, but don't over think or you'll get nervous just let instinct take over.
