In the part of Canada where I live most every town has a rodeo grounds, and many of those also have a large race track. I found one track at the Calgary Stampede that renders very nice as a representation of the track on the OSM map as an oval.

http://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/51.0333/-114.0526

I've tried to play with that one to figure out how two lines render with a shaded area between them. I've tried a few things, but many of them either fill in the oval or do not show up on the map at all. I know there are lots of other sports areas with ovals that could be done the same way, but how do you do it? Thanks!

BTW, the Calgary Stampede relation was improperly tagged as leisure=park. I have changed that tag to leisure=track so it may look slightly different once map tiles re-render.

As explained on the leisure=track page, you have to use a multipolygon-relation for that.

The accepted answer of this question explains how to do that in the iD-editor.

Thanks for your help! I wasn't having much luck searching for an answer. I've now made about four of these and have quite a few more to go. Thanks!
