D (Drive) and S (Sport) both start off in first gear. No, you don't have to switch things around racing the 1/4 mile, just put it into drive or sport and run it.

See my 1/4 mile testing I have done so far with my L99 SS here:

Now, if you are driving around in M (Manual mode) and using the buttons (paddles) on the back of the steering wheel to shift manually, and you come to a stop, the transmission will automatically downshift for you as you decel, but it will never downshift into first gear, so even once you come to a stop, you will then still be in second gear and it will remain in second, until you manually shift it.
