Default Rolling past the line after a burnout (radials)

Good morning. Don't post here a lot, but definitely browse a bunch. Radial tire racers. I see most radial tire racers roll past the starting line after their burnout, then back up. What is the reason for this? I don't see slick cars doing it, just radials. Recently switched to a 275 pro, so wondering what the reason is. Thanks

Not sure what you're watching, Muffler Guy, but almost all Comp cars burnout across the line, except for some of the 4 cylinder cars, and Super Mod cars, whether they run radials or not..

Not that ALL of them are actually under power when they cross the line, but continue to roll out to let the car settle, and check gauges, before continuing.. some even enjoy backing up to clear the smole out of the cars..

Radials, or Non Radials, really doesn't make a difference.. the Comp class is allowed to cross the line during a burnout, where S/ST, SG, Stock, and Super Stock are not.. might be what you're referring too??
