ISC ousts Chicagoland President Craig Rust is out as president of Chicagoland Speedway.
John Saunders, the president of track owner International Speedway Corp., will take over while a search for a successor is under way.
ISC made the move on Friday. It comes only a month after Daytona International Speedway president Robin Braig left to "pursue other opportunities." ISC officials have already hired Joie Chitwood III as the Daytona president.
Chicagoland Speedway will host the opening race of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship in 2011.
The track is among those owned by ISC – the publicly traded sister company to the France family's NASCAR – that lost a race date on the 2011 IndyCar Series schedule.
