Yes, agreed, but I think the (slightly) ungrammatical version is a bit clearer. But either would be a lot better than the one which has got onto the database.

Who is the king of nascar raceing?

no 'e' in racing.
NASCAR is an acronym and should be in capitals.
and since NASCAR has no actual king, adding "known as" would be more accurate.

Perfect! It reminds me an old joke.
- You know what I've heard? Mr. Smith made a bet on hockey score yesterday - and won 100$!
- Oh, yes. But not Mr. Smith, this is about Mr. Black. And is was not hockey yesterday, but poker 3 days ago. And he did not win 100$, he lost 1000 EUR. Otherwise everything is correct...

What is C from C.I.A tag stands for?

is-->does.
stands-->stand.
no article (the) before C.
no period after C.I.A.
no context for acronym.
tag? term? name? acronym?
and technically, 'for' shouldn't be dangling at the end.

seriously, how does something with so many errors get through?

writter (in the answers) should have just one t.
