Racing is a sport full of rules and regulations, so you may conclude that all racing tracks are the same. After all, what difference do they really make? You may be surprised to find that they are not the same as any of the roads in the United States. Understand the differences in stock car runways, taking into account the differences in size, surface and configuration of regular roads. Dimensions, surfaces, and configurations are the three main design elements that the course designer considers when creating a new track. Some are short, some are long. Some are paved, some are dirt. The shape of most tracks is oval, but there are different types of oval. Ultimately, the decision to configure depends on the issues that space designers have to deal with and what goals they have for their tracks. Let\'s start with an easy-to-understand difference-size. The oval track of NASCAR stock racing can be anywhere between half a mile (. 8 km) Found at the Bristol and Martinsville tracks, to 2. 66 miles (4. 2 km) Found in Talladega. Track that fails to exceed one milestone (1. 6 km) Called short track. The small track is where the car starts. When you leave the small orbit and start to rotate around a cycle of more than one track -- Mark, you\'re on the super highway. Superhighways allow drivers to reach speeds faster than short tracks because there are more lengths to build speeds [1 [ Source: economic expert. Because many games can cover 600 miles (965 km) , Super Highway reduces the number of laps that drivers must complete for a long timedistance races. The surface of the track is also different. Some tracks are made of dirt and some are made of asphalt or concrete. The dirt changes faster than the road surface, so the car must be specially designed for the instability of the dirt track. Dirt drivers must consider grip, traction and suspension than road drivers [ Source: Huneycutt]. Drivers can go faster on the laid surface because they don\'t need to worry about the instability associated with dirt. That\'s why NASCAR\'s tracks are paved these days. When we say that the orbits are usually oval, it doesn\'t mean that they are standard oval shapes. Some oval shapes can even be perfect on both sides, or some are egg-shaped. It could also be a three. D-oval track Oval and square tracksoval track. Since the track is usually oval, the designer must consider it in particular when designing a turn. If the track is completely flat, the car must slow down sharply when turning, so that they do not completely leave the track or slip. Banking refers to the design of the rising angle of the course, which solves the problem and helps drivers to turn more easily. Steep slopes allow drivers to turn faster [ Source: Gambling odds of Nascar]. Looking at a track, you can usually see that the inside lane is lower than the outside lane. The banking business is measured by the degree of inclination. For example, on the NASCAR track, the bank has three The big concrete bowl in Bristol [drove the Pocono track to 36 degrees]source: Harris]. While there are some basic similarities, the layout and composition of each stock track ultimately depends largely on the individual alliance that manages it. Each league has its own rules and regulations that affect the track. Now, you \'ve learned about the differences in the stock car track, so if someone says \"they\'re all the same,\" you can correct them with an informed response.
