Trying something outside my realm of expertise here, but I wanted to try a new concept out for size -- so why not here on CAPS?

- Just landed a the "largest media rights deal in NASCAR's history" with a 10 year deal with NBC starting in 2015
- This is only months removed after landing an 8 year - $2.4 billion deal with FOX
- Essentially a content provider to whomever would like to pay them, allowing strong positioning regardless of cable's future
- Dropped its share count from 53 million in 2007 to 46 in 2012, is eyeing future buybacks with a solid balance sheet

Long story short, International Speedway Corp. hasn't been given enough credit for essentially raising its media rights revenue by 50% or more with its new NBC deal. Did I mention media rights account for 46-50% of the company's overall revenues?

I see this one as a special situation type buy and will hold it until the market realizes the value of its new media contracts correctly.

As long as the economy doesn't tank again, there seems to be plenty of disposable income for racing.

Once the economic recovery takes hold, this stock will take off. Fans are extremely loyal to NASCAR and are just waiting until they can afford tickets again to send this stock higher.

the rapid growth of nascar in the late 90's early-mid 2000's has long cooled down. attendance at many ISC tracks for NASCAR are down, and I expect them to level or drop further. NASCAR is alienating much of its traditional fan base who don't like the influx of foreign born drivers and foreign manufacturer nameplates in the sport. Its growth into the international market has been iffy at best (mexico city attendance down).

The unified indy car series is picking up momentum and getting more mainstream media coverage. This may eventually cut into NASCARs coverage, and indy car may even take some of nascars sponsors in a few years. although the indycar series currently races at 5 ISC tracks, ISCs relationship with the IRL has been poor (due to ISCs close relationship it NASCAR, and the IRL is a competitor to NASCAR); indycar previously raced in as many 8 ISC tracks and the number will probably drop to 4 next year and maybe further.

Rising oil prices will hurt nascar significantly, and in turn, ISC. NASCAR is not exploring alternative fuel and alternative energy technologies like ethanol, turbo diesels, or regenitive braking, etc like IRL, ALMS, F1 are. In addition to the rising costs hurting teams and fans (transportation costs) NASCARs image will look environmentally unfriendly as "green" becomes more fashionable.

NASCAR really has nowhere to go but down at this point, and I expect NASCAR to pull down ISC, even more then SMI.

It's the season and if noone can afford to drive across the nation to pay for some extravagant vacation they may be able to pay for the closest NASCAR.

Racetracks like Daytona and Talledega are the Lambeau Field of motorsports. The same people who own NASCAR own the majority of ISCA, bringing long-term stability. Future growth into the Pacific Northwest and Greater New York area could bring a short-term downturn, but company is well suited to provide quality returns over the long haul.

If you look at the 5 yr avg of ISCA you can see it peaks near Mid Season for Nascar..Correlate to the race and who is in it and you will know when to sell...but comeback in December or January
