There are many reasons to have a quite exhaust, first is that you are more stealthy if you end up having to take evasive action.

I always wondered at the race track... I used to race CMC where you are required to run a restricter plate - and everyone has straight pipes. I had to add weight to my car to meet regulations - i would have rather just had a muffler. Why at nascar where they run restrictor plates do they have loud exhausts? I have to wear earplugs - why not just have quite racecars and restrict the air intake less? Much better to be able to talk to my GF at the race without ear plugs, in my opinion.
