Smith likened Homestead Miami Speedway to ``North Cuba,'' arguing it is not the ``proper place'' for the Sprint Cup series to end the Chase for the championship.
The longtime track owner says he'd prefer NASCAR to run its final Cup race at SMI-owned Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Smith said he expects IndyCar to end the 2011 season at the 1.5-mile oval next October.
Despite his protests, SMI did not make a formal request for NASCAR to add a second Las Vegas race to the 2011 schedule. Smith said it's because he doesn't believe it would make a difference.
