Portland, Oregon wants to make its International Raceway the first carbon-neutral track in the U.S., the Associated Press reports.

The city’s Bureau of Parks & Recreation, with help from the city’s office of sustainable development, is collecting data to determine how much carbon is emitted from the city-owned track.
