Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but from a historical perspective, touring cars started out as rubber tires only on all surfaces (even carpet). Racing with foam tires on carpet came after (and apparently mostly in the U.S.). So I guess asphalt racing has stuck "closer to its roots," for whatever reason. Personally I've run both rubber and foam on both carpet and asphalt. For whatever reason, I prefer running rubber on all surfaces. Just my opinion. Guess I just like how the car drives better on rubber tires.
