one of those oval shaped, racecar/track and field tracks

Well since its an oval, just subtract the bigger/outer oval from the inner/smaller oval to get the area of the track I think.
Area of oval = Pi * A * B; where A is the length from the center to the longer side of the the oval and B is the length from the center to the opposing side. If that makes sense? not completely sure though.
