If I recall correctly, for some of the Runoffs races at Road Atlanta, they actually moved the start to the end of the pit road out. And reason was to get all cars in sight of starter. Other than having to have a lift arm platform for starter, what's the problem for just start being moved? Everything else including finish at proper line. If Runoffs were ever at Sebring, sure would make good sense.
BTW, and I know you get tired of hearing how we do things at short tracks, but they work, we do not allow the pole position car to pass the pace car once it pulls down off the track for the starts. The pace car maintains the same 35 MPH speed it had while in front of the pack as it continues off the track and down pit road. Only when the pole sitter reaches the start box and the command for green is given, can he increase speed. And if he slows from the 35 MPH, he is penalized. No brake checking, etc. allowed. The start is not a game. This is an example of why we do what we do. No car would ever get away with passing that many cars before the start. We want the cars to race not be wrecked before the race even starts. In October, we ran 2 races of 176 laps each at Hickory Motor Speedway which is .365 miles and had only one caution and that was for a spin with no contact. Races can be run without costly body damage and even worse, physical damage to the driver. No one wants to get hurt having fun.
