The owner of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway is considering moving a second NASCAR Sprint Cup race to Las Vegas.

Bruton Smith owns Speedway Motorsports Inc., which has eight tracks in several areas around the country, including Las Vegas and Charlotte, North Carolina.

Smith told a TV station in Charlotte that he is considering moving the Charlotte Bank of America 500 that runs in October to Las Vegas. Smith said he can make a lot more money with 10-year contract in Las Vegas.

He must request the move through NASCAR, but, according to the Sporting News, the organization has not stopped a realignment request since the rule was adopted 10 years ago.

"They have made me offers to move one. NASCAR would approve of this. It is something in the stages now for at least a year. When the game is over, it will be money, money, money. Money will move it," Smith said.

NASCAR Hauler Parade and Sprint Series Practice Moved

Two of the most popular parts of NASCAR week in Las Vegas are moving.

The NASCAR Hauler Parade will now be held Wednesday, March 6 on the Las Vegas Strip. The parade features the colorful 18-wheelers used to haul the cars and equipment to tracks around the country.

The parade will start at the Welcome to Las Vegas sign on the south end of the Strip, travel up to Sahara Avenue and enter I-15 northbound to make their way to the Las Vegas Motor Speedway.

The parade has traditionally been held the Thursday before race weekend begins. The change is necessary to make room for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series practice at the speedway.

The all-day practice was originally scheduled for January, but has been moved to Thursday, March 7. From 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the public will be able to watch the practice in the grandstands at the speedway, free of charge.
