We use to do them at our local oval tracks and still do from time to time it was a ton of fun for me on dirt way back in the day in our DD class everyone else was running LeMans 240 ST's and 7 cells I was using a slot machine and 6 cells if the track was slick I could get the jump on everybody. Now we still do it on the carpet it's real fun in 17.5 truck 17.5 open is a little hairy.
We start all our dirt tri oval races with rolling starts, single file, and the guy running the computer hits the start button after we cross the transponder scoring loop. We pace so we don't get back to start before the start tone. Five seconds from pressing start button until final start tone. Tri oval is 200'. We do this for 1/10 Sliders, 1/8 electric late model, short course late model. We also start the mains the same way. Have not had any issues since we started this first of this season.
