Get your spring rates correct for your body weight, but as far as spending money on a revalve, you probably want to hold off on that until you get a few races under your belt and learn first had what the conditions are like in the series you do.  Riders that are actually doing that series are likely to be able to give you better advice than what you will get on a website.  

 

For your first few races, your MX suspension (assuming your bike is a yz 250f) is certainly not going to be ideal, but it should be workable.  After getting the spring rate correct (and sag, etc.), find a section of terrain than is a good representation of race conditions.   Make note of your stock (or starting) clicker positions.  I would start by going softer on compression, while leaving the rebound roughly standard.  A lot of people will tell you to make small changes (1 or 2 clicks), but I actually like to make big changes (something that your can unmistakably feel), and then start zeroing in on what feel best.  After you get a setting you like, write it down, and then go back to your starting position and compare, to see if it actually feels better. By keeping track of the changes, you should be able to get a feel for what's going to work for you on that bike, and it will also give you more information when you talk with a tuner about getting a revalve done at some point in the future.
