How is running speed affected by ground surface?

I'm wondering if anyone has come across any research on how different surfaces affect running pace?  I don't race much, but I do find myself sometimes running road races, sometimes on 'tracks', other times on grass and find it hard to make any meaningful comparison between one and the other.  Any thoughts?

OK - look at times for 10k

fastest times - track

next fastest - road

off road - slowest

says everything really.
