Default Rolling Past The Line After Burnout

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.

Not really about the tires. Gives you a chance to get the car in the groove after the burnout which normally moves it around. Gives engine alittle more time to put temp in the pistons and oil. Some tracks have a shorter or longer distance between the water box and tree, always rolling past keeps staging procedure more consistent.
