Apple wine getting ready to rack for first time.

Any reason I can not just flood the carboy with CO2 after its racked and not worry about topping off?

I have an unlimited supply of CO2 and O2 so it seemed like a good idea to me. I can even start with the carboy full of CO2 as I rack into it then flood the top with 3 times the amount needed to be sure all the O2 is gone. At that point I will just put the Air lock on and let it sit. Assuming this is an ok idea.

Yes/No?
