Recommends Sale Of Track
WITHER LAS VEGAS? In Las Vegas, Jeff Wolf writes with SMI Chair & CEO Bruton Smith last week announcing a deal to purchase Kentucky Speedway, the prospects of getting a second NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race at Las Vegas Motor Speedway (LVMS) “seem to be off the front burner, if not removed from the stove completely” (LAS VEGAS REVIEW JOURNAL, 5/30). An “oft-repeated rumor had Smith closing Pocono and moving one of its races to Kentucky Speedway and the other" to LVMS. However, that rumor was “quashed this week” when Pocono co-Owner Rose Mattioli said that she and her husband Joseph “had no intention of selling the track to Smith or anyone else” (LAS VEGAS SUN, 5/30).
