ÂStock car racing is a sport, full of rules and regulations, soÂ you might conclude that all car racetracks are the same. After all, how different could they really be?
Albany-Saratoga Speedway is a 4/10 mile dirt stock car race track with
a long and storied history in the Capital District region of New York.
It is conveniently located on Route 9 in Malta NY, and has been
continuously hosting stock car races since 1965.
You might be surprised to learn that they differ as much as any road differs from another in the United States. To understand the differences of stock car racetracks, think of the size, surface and configuration differences of regular roads. Size, surface and configuration are the three major design elements that course designers consider when creating a new track. Some are short lengths while others are long. Some are paved and some are dirt. Most racetracks have an oval shape, but there are different types of ovals. In the end, deciding on configuration comes down to the space designers have to work with and what goals they have for their track.
