DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (March 27, 2003) - Daytona International Speedway President Robin Braig announced today that David Talley has been named Director of Media Relations for the Speedway.

Talley, who recently served as International Speedway Corporation's Director of Corporate Communications, will continue his Corporate Communications duties, as well as focus on media relations, public relations and consumer programs for the Speedway.

"As Director of Corporate Communications for the past 5 years, David brings a unique PR insight to an already talented team," said Braig. "His contributions and past accomplishments will be invaluable as we continue to position Daytona International Speedway as the highest level of motorsports entertainment.''

Talley has a degree in Journalism from the University of South Carolina in Columbia. Prior to joining ISC, he served in the Public Relations department at CNN in Atlanta for 9 years. He has also had prior jobs at several news organizations.

Glyn Johnston, who has managed Daytona International Speedway's communication efforts for the past four years, will focus on both DIS and ISC special initiatives.

"Leveraging Glyn's experience in this new role will further enhance ISC's position as the leader in motorsports entertainment" said Braig.
