Smith, whose Speedway Motorsports Inc. owns Charlotte, Las Vegas and seven other major motorsports facilities, said, “When the game is over, it’ll be money, money, money. Money will move it. I'd say (the odds of moving the race) are about 70/30.
“I've been having strong conversations about one of these events being moved," said Smith to WBTV reporter Paul Cameron today. "Las Vegas is a great place -- the entertainment capital of the world -- and they want another event."
Las Vegas Motor Speedway currently hosts a single Sprint Cup Series race, in March of each year. Smith has repeatedly lobbied NASCAR to move its season-finale from Homestead Miami Speedway to Las Vegas, but the sanctioning body has shown no interest in doing so.
NASCAR has already begun work on the 2014 Sprint Cup Series schedule, but has not received a request from SMI – either written or verbal -- to realign a race.
