Spot on.

For the race tracks the shorter sidewall will be of benefit as discussed.

For the drags however a taller sidewall is preferable. This is the reason why drag slicks have such tall high profiles, you want a soft flexible sidewall to allow more contact area and grip on take-off.

For the street, depends on the quality of the streets in your area, if you do a lot of country driving I would go for the 35's.
