The "first" thing to go would be your headgasket. Do a compression test, and if that turns out fine, your head & gasket are most likely fine. I overheated my engine several times while it was a street car (cracked radiator fitting once, blown aux fan another time, blown tensionner pulley a third), and then I ran it for 2 years on the track before I swapped it for my M52 build. Yes it "could" happen, but it could also be ok.
