I seem to remember seeing more trucks break before 500 feet than after... As far as stress level, I would venture to guess that at launch on a sticky track coming off the trans brake would be the highest stress level... but I could very well be wrong.

Top end of the track problems seem to tend to be turbo related more often from what I have seen... Of course there are MANY exceptions to the rule like when the Scheid rail blew apart the well-seasoned block at TS, that happened toward the top end of the track.
