Not that many people race on an oval. That has a lot of straight and not many corners. <br /><br />Straight line speed only gets you so far. <br /><br />Do the math on any track. Calculate the total straight length, calculate the total corner length. Figure in time for acceleration and braking. <br /><br />Then figure out if its faster to carry 5 mph for each length of each corner vs 5 mph faster in a straight line.Sean Morrishttps://www.blogger.com/profile/01764446879030639598noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-658680187485302476.post-15431192464890746142009-12-10T09:56:09.984-08:002009-12-10T09:56:09.984-08:00Speed through the corners depends on the track.

If the track doesn't have as many corners but more straights we will see a differet outcome.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
