Minor league baseball executive Rick Brenner is taking over as president of Michigan International Speedway.

The International Speedway Corporation announced Brenner's move Thursday. It takes effect September 19th. Brenner replaces Roger Curtis, whose departure was announced shortly after MIS hosted NASCAR races in late August.

Brenner served for over a decade as president of DSF Sports and Entertainment, the company that owns the New Hampshire Fisher Cats, a Double-A affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays. This season was his 23rd in minor league baseball. He also was chief operating officer and general manager of the Trenton Thunder.
