Tagging as Motorcross track makes no sense, so what should I do?

If what you want to map is a racetrack you can use highway=raceway with an appropriate sport= key.

If this is more some sort of marked trail not primarily for racing you should map the ways as highway=path or what better indicates their nature and add appropriate access tags, e.g. access=no and motorcycle=designated. You can then also add a route relation combining the individual highways into the complete trail.

I believe highway=track may be suitable. https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dtrack

A track is a piece of highway for mostly agricultural or forestry use. This does not fit at all.
