NASCAR Green recognized ISC's motorsports facilities with the NASCAR Green
track operator award for the following:

Auto Club Speedway of Southern California

NASCAR Green recognized the partnership Auto Club of Speedway of Southern
California ("ACS") has with the local rail authority, Metrolink. The
partnership received grant funding from the South Coast Air Quality District
specifically for major event venues within their district that are not served
by regular public transit services and experience high levels of traffic
congestion during events. In addition, NASCAR Green highlighted the millions
of gallons of sewer and waste water generated by ACS that is diverted to
California Steel Industries, which uses the water for the cooling process of
steel manufacturing.

Darlington Raceway

NASCAR Green recognized Darlington Raceway and Clemson University partnership
to grow switchgrass on speedway grounds, which will later be used in
production of bio-fuels.

Daytona International Speedway

NASCAR Green recognized Daytona International Speedway ("DIS") for the
significant recycling and waste diversion efforts at its major motorsports
events. In 2012, DIS, in partnership with Coca-Cola Recycling, recycled over
150 tons of cardboard, commingled mix material, steel and aluminum. Also,
DIS participates in the NASCAR Green Clean Air program where 10 trees are
planted for each Green Flag that drops during races, capturing 100 percent of
the carbon produced by the on track racing at its events.

Kansas Speedway

NASCAR Green recognized Kansas Speedway's significant support of its efforts
during Earth Day. Kansas Speedway hosted the 2013 Green Energy Challenge -- a
program teaching local students about green efforts through environmental
education.

Michigan International Speedway

Michigan International Speedway ("MIS") was recognized by NASCAR Green for its
wetland conservation efforts at its facility, maintaining approximately 200
acres of protected wetland in and around its facility. In addition, NASCAR
Green recognized MIS' new solar-powered building, one of the largest U.S.
producers of green energy in American sports. The sun-powered, 31-suite
building and track media center is outfitted with approximately 8,000-square
feet of solar panels across the rooftop that generates about 70,000 kw per
hour - enough energy to power 439 fluorescent light bulbs, 79 incandescent
light bulbs, 175 laptop computers, 19 desktop computers and 26 refrigerators.
Also, MIS featured a 2013 Ford Fusion Energi plug-in vehicle as its official
pace car at both of its NASCAR weekend events.

Richmond International Raceway

Richmond International Raceway ("RIR") was honored for its significant support
of Race to Green and the Virginia Department of Forestry Initiatives. In
addition, NASCAR Green recognized RIR for featuring in 2012, the first
electric pace car, a Ford Focus Electric.

Watkins Glen International

NASCAR Green recognized Watkins Glen International and NextEra Energy joining
forces to launch a windmill project that will create a lasting renewable
energy resource for the area. Approximately 50 turbines will be installed over
the next two years, with each tower capable of powering 2,900 homes annually.

environmental sustainability policies and practices across our motorsports
facilities," stated ISC Chief Executive Officer Lesa France Kennedy. "These
