Dover Motorsports: Change Is A Good Thing

DVD stock has been dead money for nearly a decade, as a seemingly obvious case for Dover as a takeover target hasn't played out. But a reopened track in Nashville, upheaval in the NASCAR schedule, and changes to Dover's ownership suggest there should be some urgency around a sale. A rally over the past year-plus adds a bit of risk, and lessens reward, but Dover stock still seems like it should have more upside ahead.
