   The France family's International Speedway Corp. (NASDAQ: ISCA) is making more management changes, apparently reflecting more analysis of the company's track operations by Joie Chitwood, who moved from Indianapolis Motor Speedway to the Daytona operation last summer.
   Both changes come at Kansas Speedway: Jeff Boerger will move from track president to head of the 'Kansas Speedway Development Corp.,' which is part of the ISC operation expanding into the Kansas casino project – the 'Hollywood Casino' -- with Penn National (the gaming complex to open in early 2012). And Pat Warren will take over as track president.
   Boerger has been running the track since 1998. Warren, a consumer marketing specialist, is being promoted from Kansas vice president.
  Other significant management changes made since Chitwood joined Daytona: Matthew Becherer (from Richmond International Raceway) promoted and given the reins as head of Homestead-Miami Speedway, and Rick Humphrey (from Talladega Superspeedway) promoted  and given the job of ISC's managing director of business operations, under Chitwood.
