Default track direction during installation

Quick question....replaced the drive shaft bearing recently on my Polaris 600 classic, and while re-installing the track I noticed an arrow embossed on the track. I had already decifered the correct track direction of rotation from the wear pattern on the picks, but does this arrow indicate direction of travel? Hence arrow should point to front of sled when positioned on top of track?

Arrow points in the direction the track would rotate while moving forward. The arrow should be pointing toward the rear of the snowmobile when looking at the track from bottom.

Edit: welcome to the site too.

The correct way to install a track is the way Mud described, however, if you're going to do some sort of racing that requires more traction and little braking then putting the track on backwords can sometimes improve traction(depending on the track). But be careful, because most times this does negatively affect how quickly the sled will stop.
