I [ran] around the track four times at the previous football game.

OR

I [have run] around the track four times at the previous football game?

• grammar -

The first is right.

"Have run" would be used for action that occurred in the past and is still occurring.

I have run around the track four times.

• grammar -

Since it's an action that took place in the past and does not continue into the present, use the first one, the simple past.
