Track judges are placed at the finish line at track meets to see who finishes the race first. Their duty is to watch the lanes to see who's torso, which can be their head, neck, or shoulders, crosses the edge of the finish line first.

What is the difference in distance between the inside lane and outside lane on track for track and field?

If you measure the absolute lengths, the further our the lane is, the longer it is, because the corners have a bigger radius. This is why events such as the 200/400m have staggered starts, as it compensates for the difference in length of the lanes. The other difference is that some people "feel" better in a certain lane, but this seems to happen for no apparent reason.

How do you get the measurement for a lap at a Nascar track is it in the middle lane on the outside lane or the inside lane?

Usually the size of a track is determined by the inside measurement, and the track becomes longer in the middle lane, and even longer yet in the outside lane. this is why you see them at most tracks qualify on the inside lane, its shorter.

What track lane to use when running a mile?

If the race is done with a "waterfall" start, then run in lane 1 or as close to it as possible the whole time. If it is more official and there are zones marked by cones on the track specifying where you can cut in, run as close to the inside of the track as you can until you can cut in, then gradually merge toward lane one. lane one is the inner most lane and the shortest distance (400m) around.

How long is one lap in the 6th lane on a 400-meter track?

400 meters. The track is designed so that no mater what lane you are in, the distance is equal as long as lane 6 starts ahead of 5-1. There are starting markers on the track that will say 400m, 200m, ect. and that is how you know where to start. The starting points are scattered because of the potion of your lane, if you are in lane 1, you will be starting in the back. If you are in lane 8, you will be in front. The only time you are not staggered is if you are on a straight path such as a 100m or 50m.
