I'm not going to say that the 1 track day to 500 miles ratio always applies but it isn't unreasonable in my book.
Interesting thought and you most likely are right with the 1 track day 500miles conversion. The question is should we apply that not just for the oil change but for other maintenance interval as well.
During my track days I am on the track about 80-100 miles so there is x5 factor for wear and tear compared to normal driving.
