Difference in terms used in American and Singapore

In Singapore, we park our car in a "parking lot" in a car park. In America, the "lot" refers to the entire area to park many cars. The car is parked in a "space".

In Singapore, we have 8 running "tracks" in a stadium. In America, there have one track with 8 "lanes".

My American friend was confused when I refer to track 1 to track 8 in the stadium. He said there is only 1 track with 8 lanes.
