What sorts of spaces Racetracks are good for?
A racetrack dining table is a rectangular table with rounded ends. This means that it fits well into spaces that are longer than they are wide.

Center extensions are the classic design for table leaves. The table pulls open and leaves are added in with pins to help secure them in place. With center extensions, the grain on the whole table, including the leaves, runs the width of the table.
How they compare to ovals?

How they compare to rectangles?
A square end extension table is similar to a rectangle extension table in that they both add leaves to the ends and create a rectangle or at least a larger one when the leaves are in place. A square end extension table, though, is a great solution for a smaller space as the everyday size is smaller, typically perfect for 2-4 people.
