International Speedway Corporation has named Chip Wile as the new president of Darlington Raceway, the company announced Thursday.
Wile immediately takes the reins of NASCAR’s oldest superspeedway from Chris Browning, who had overseen the track since May 2004.
Wile built upon an extensive background in public relations in the NASCAR industry, working with several drivers and sponsors. He joined Motor Racing Network in 2012 and most recently served as the company’s director of business development.
Wile also worked closely with ISC, which owns 12 tracks that together annually host a total of 19 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series events.
“We were fortunate to have such a high-caliber individual to transition into a strategic position within our organization,” ISC president John Saunders said in a statement. “We congratulate Chip on his new position and look forward to his continued success within our organization. I would also like to thank Chris for his many years of service at Darlington. We wish him much success in his future endeavors.”
