I've never liked unfair wave arounds in any series. If you are a lap down you screwed up and shouldn't be awarded for it.

Lapped cars didn't "Complete" few laps they "Competed" fewer laps. In other words they got a free parade lap while the leaders had to sit and suck on it.
Yes there are rules, but the whole point is to make it fair for the lead cars to compete with each other and not be unfairly impeded by the lapped cars on restart.
It makes for better racing on restart.
