Building Council with its Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design
("LEED") gold certification and the EPA's Energy Star certification, has a
recycling rate of approximately 60 percent.

Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Recycling Recognition Program
was developed to encourage private businesses, institutions, schools, public
organizations and citizens to increase recycling in order to reach Florida's
recycling goal of 75 percent by 2020.

"We are honored to receive the Recycling Recognition Program award from the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection," stated ISC Chief Executive

commitment and we are excited to see further progress and improvements
throughout our company. The International Motorsports Center is just one part
of a comprehensive sustainability program that we are undertaking for a
healthy environment."

ISC working together with NASCAR, which has the largest recycling and
environmental sustainability programs among all U.S. sports, has partnered
with multiple organizations to successfully assist in its environmental
sustainability programs. As examples, ISC in partnership with Coca-Cola, are
working hand-in-hand to provide opportunities for race fans to actively
participate in recycling programs. Safety-Kleen assists ISC with the
recycling of event waste materials. ISC participates in the largest tree
planting program in sports in partnership with UPS. Watkins Glen International
and NextEra Energy have joined forces to launch a windmill project that will
create a lasting renewable energy resource for the area. Also, our Michigan
International Speedway has a new solar-powered building that is among the
largest U.S. producers of green energy in American sports. For more
