July 8 (Reuters) - International Speedway Corp (ISCA.O) posted lower-than-expected quarterly results as bad weather during a couple of key race events hurt attendance, and the race-track owner cut its full-year outlook as it expects attendance revenue to continue to fall.

Second-quarter results, hurt by a still-troubled economy, were "compounded by weather issues, which further impacted attendance-related revenues at our Martinsville Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway race weekends," Chief Executive Lesa France Kennedy said in a statement.

The company posted second-quarter net income of $10.3 million, or 21 cents a share, compared with a net loss of $31.7 million, or 65 cents a share, in the year-ago period.

Excluding items, it earned 22 cents a share, missing analysts' average estimate of 29 cents a share, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.

Total revenue fell 7 percent to $142.2 million.

The Daytona Beach, Florida-based company expects full-year profit of $1.50 to $1.60 a share, excluding items, down from its previous view of $1.60 to $1.80 a share.

Shares of the company closed at $25.01 Wednesday on Nasdaq.
