When one thinks NASCAR, one doesn't necessarily think "class," but you'd expect a little bit of tact from one of the sports bigwigs.
Bruton Smith is an octogenarian billionaire who made his money in promoting race, and he's sick of seeing the final race of the NASCAR season run in Homestead, or "Home Instead" as he so moronically calls it. Where would he like to have it? Oh, of course the track in Atlanta, or maybe Las Vegas. You know, the ones his the company he chairs owns.
"Why would you have the final race of the year in some God-forsaken place that's near Cuba?," is his line of reasoning.
