Bruton Smith Says Strong Chance He'll Move Fall Cup Race From Charlotte To Vegas
Published May 21, 2013
RAISING FLAGS: ESPN.com’s David Newton noted Smith has “lobbied for a second Vegas race date for several years with no success.” Smith also has “lobbied to move the season finale from Homestead-Miami Speedway to Vegas, where the season-ending banquet has been held since 2009.” The Wheeler Co. Chair & former SMI President & CEO Humpy Wheeler “believes Smith's threat to move is connected to his ongoing legal fight with Cabarrus County.” Smith filed a lawsuit against the city of Concord in '09 "seeking millions worth of infrastructure improvements near and around the track.” He claims that county officials “breached a contract by not following through.” In April, Smith “tried to resurrect that lawsuit, claiming officials reneged" on an offer of $80M (ESPN.com, 5/20).
