Simply put from Horsepower/Torque Race Perspective, Torque is the low end power of the car.

Build a motor for low end torque and it will usually take care of horsepower.

Big Blocks Often tend to be good friends with torque.
Torque is often created from an excessive stroke on big blocks, thus there non high reving attributes.
