New Tire Scrub in--??

Do you folks scrub in a new tire before doin rides, especially twistie ridin...???
I have seen in this forum or XL forum that you should scrub in a new tire to get the release agent rubbed off before any serious ridin...
I was just thinkin, since I put on a new rear tire that I might go to a ball field parkin lot about a mile from my house and do something like a few figure 8s and scrub it in, if I can get over this dang crud... Some say just ride careful for the first 100 mi., but I don't like to be too careful...... What do y'all think...???
Thanks, and have a good one...Old Dog...
