Before the plates a car could get a good run and just run away from the field.
I thought the restrictor plates were to slow the cars down because they were getting airborne when they spun out at 200+ mph. The roof flaps aided in changing the aerodynamics to help keep them on the ground when they spun too......
My fault you are right the general purpose of the restrictor plate was to slow cars down but a major advantage to them is that they do force the cars to stay together.

That's true, but we're always waiting for "The Big One" which prompted me to start this thread. Thanks for the link.
