Would an ignition delay be worth the trouble to save on wear n tear?

Like this,you turn the key,the starter comes on turns over a few times then the ignition comes on and it fires up. Nascar uses it,they just do it manual though.

Just as an opinion, I would say no. There's already oil in the galleys and on the bearing surfaces, and once you start to crank it over the pump begins to circulate the oil. The basic principal isn't any different than that of your daily driver, and how many miles are on that?

Usually the reason for getting the motor cranking and then hitting the ignition is to prevent starter damage from the motor "kicking back". This is especially true if you run a lot of ignition timing & have a distributor with the advance locked out.
