I would put the DOT cars back in the original order. BUt send the cars that went into the hot chute at the tail applying the rule where once a line up is called cars entering the track go to the tail. That one already exists.
Turn one - first lap wrecks already are hectic this is due to the fact that passing can commence prior to the start/finish line. With the removal of passing prior to the start finish car 3 will have the same speed as car 1 and same with car 5. We do this on restarts at Toledo and have very little accidents resulting from passes began prior to the S/F line. With a simple rule as I mentioned any car jumping out of line prior to s/f line will be given one warning, then sent to the tail for a repeated offense.
Makes perfect sense, I didn't account for the even speeds it would create. So you would keep the acceleration point where it's at so the cars would reach speed, but keep the cars in line until the start-finish line? I wonder though, with a double-file start would it create a problem at a smaller track giving the field just a few ten feet to sort out. What I mean to say is, somewhere like Kokomo it would be tight. Especially considering the tight turn 1-2 which is less wide because a big part of the hotchute is cut out of it. I'm not saying it wouldn't work though. If anything, it's worth looking into.
I just feel like the first lap of .25s are broken as is. It could be as simple as just clarifying the rule or changing it, but right now there is confusion. Where I worry about a first lap reprieve is drivers who realize it's almost a free pass. I could see drivers leaning on one another or something because the lessened consequence. Why I draw this conclusion is, watching and rewatching taped races this year, I see drivers who will jump the first start knowing if they get caught it's just a warning. I don't know that it would be that way, just something I wonder about.
