The Stories Behind The Standings
Just like there are always stories behind the standings at every race track, the same is true of the Top 10 Tracks of the Summer of 2013. Here's a few of them that stand out:
Drag Strips and Ovals... Guess Who Wins?! Even though Oval tracks outpace Drag Strips by a count of nearly Three to One in the RacingIn.com Track Directory, drag strips made up 5 of the top 10 most viewed tracks! These Top 5 Drag Strips were also incredibly popular generating more than 30% MORE PROFILE VIEWS than the Top 5 Oval Tracks that make up the rest of the top 10.
ReOpening a Closed Track Can Pay Off! In the cases of West Siloam Speedway and Princeton Speedway, both are tracks where racing made a come back in 2013. BOTH tracks each already have more than 3,000 fans on their individual Facebook pages and seem to be doing something right! Anytime a track comes back to life, that's a good thing and we wish them nothing but ongoing success!
Dirt is where it's at, but Asphalt is still in demand! With the total number of dirt or clay tracks far exceeding those of paved ovals in the directory, it's no wonder that dirt or clay tracks make up the top of the standings, but kudos must also be given to Barberton Raceway Park in Ohio, New Smyrna Speedway in Florida and Midvale Speedway in Ohio for being the top 3 paved tracks in the summer of 2013.
