Answer . It is unclear what you mean by events. Certainly the end of WWII in the Pacific and European theaters were big events. So were the A-bombs..

Is Nascar the biggest spectator sport in the World?

Yes NASCAR is the largest spectator sports in America and even the World. Many people believe it is soccer but that is false. Soccer is the most played sport but NASCAR still has the largest fan base in the world as of 2009. In America many people believe the NFL is the most popular, and a few years ago that would have been true. However NASCAR is also the fastest growing sport in the world so over the past few years it quickly caught up to the NFL and passed it. IF you don't believe i even saw this on a show on ESPN and several other channels. Many people who are not NASCAR fans would like to reject this answer, but the true fact is NASCAR is the largest spectator sport in the world EDIT: This is a bit of an ambiguous question, do you mean live attendees, single day events, total season attendance at all professional events combined, world wide television audience?? You need to qualify your question a little bit, but I'll add what I can. A) I have a major issue with the claim that NASCAR boasts more viewers than soccer. NASCAR can legitimately claim 200-300,000 live spectators per weekend, however, with all of NASCARs competitors (drivers) at the same event every weekend, NASCAR's live attendance in no instance eclipses 400,000. When you count of all the professional soccer events throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas, live attendance at professional events is well into the tens of millions every weekend. Throw in the televised audiences and I defy you to prove to me that NASCAR exceeds Soccer's reach (even when only counting professional events). B) The most viewed LIVE professional sport in the USA is actually rodeo. Yes, rodeo. This is because rodeo is a grass roots professional sport with points-events in many many small towns in every state in the nation, every weekend through a very long season. Each event pays "day money" so it is in fact truly professional. It is also structured so that nearly every competitor who competes in any of these events can accrue "points" (total cash winnings, in reality) toward the national title in Las Vegas in October, the NFR (National Finals Rodeo), where the winner of the ten day event can take home over a million dollars. Rodeo however has literally no tv coverage outside of the NFR in October, and therefore can't even be compared to NASCARs weekly televised count. Now before you NASCAR fans jump all over me, please visit prorodeo.com for more information. C) Even the Tour de France boasts more live-event attendees for its yearly competition than NASCAR ticks at the box office for an entire season of event attendees. (over 15 Million people line the streets of France's myriad small towns over the Tour de France's 21 day span). HOWEVER, when you count television coverage, or count live attendees for a single day, at a single geographic event, NASCAR is the largest (it has to be qualified pretty heavily to hold it's "title" as the "Biggest" spectator sport in the world). With seats for roughly 200 thousand spectators at its marquis events like Daytona and Taladega, there is no other sport that can put live fans in front of the action for a single event quite like NASCAR. Unfortunately I don't have the numbers on televised soccer viewership, but again, I'd be willing to bet on soccer as the true winner of Biggest Spectator Sport in the World (let's call it "The Most Widely Viewed Professional Sport on any Single Day Counting TV and Live Attendees"). Americans tend to forget that there's a lot more world out there than what is contained between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans!!

How do they decide who gets to host world sporting events?

I believe that sporting events do raffles in which each country can be submitted into. Then there are usually four finalist countries. For example, the Olympics for 2016 when Chicago, Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo were the countries to be selected, there was a panel of judges who decided whether the country was qualified enough to be the host. The qualifications vary from environment to economic standing. Rio de Janeiro was chosen because it was best suited for the Olympics, along with the World Cup. The FIFA World Cup, I believe, also works the same way.
