As far as "why", I'm not qualified to answer that.
However, lower pressure means more "suction" into the storm, making it turn faster. It's like an ice skater moving their arms in close to increase their spin speed. So lower pressure usually translates into higher wind speeds, i.e., faster spin.
Feel free to flog me with a wet tracking chart if you don't think this is correct.
