Default Racing engines...what breaks most often?

Just curious for those with racing engines or who race...is there a component of the engine that breaks more often than others? From what I have seen and read, it seems the bottom end of these engines is usually pretty robust, rarely failing? If so, then would that mean valves/springs/cams would be the leader?
