I also noticed that. In fact the example given in the proposal http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=19/25.45387/-80.40864 is the Homestead-Miami Speedway which hosts not just Nascar but a whole range of different events by different companies and sponsors,(IndyCar Series, Sports Car Championships see  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homestead-Miami_Speedway). So the facilities at the race track would be used by all of these events and not just for Nascar. 

They should be tagged as parts of the race track and not as the operator of only one single event that takes place there.

Isn't nascar a private company not a 'sport'? Similar to the touring circus that is Formula1?

Aren't the tracks used by other racing categories?

Hello, subscribers of the tagging mailing list...

I have created a feature proposal in order to more easily map motorsports tracks, most specifically NASCAR tracks.

A link can be found here: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Proposed_features/nascar.

Although this is not a formal RFC, I would like some feedback regarding this.
