  • I agree that a driver shouldn't have to have won a race to make the Chase. The scenario is unlikely, but what if the points leader going into the Chase hadn't won a race. The most consistent driver would be elimated? No way is that fair.

    And expanding the Chase to the top 15 is nothing but the Dale Jr. rule. I do kinda like the idea of elimination races in the Chase however. The drivers that barely make the Chase never really compete for the title anyway.

    • I think a higher importance on winning is a good thing. Outsiders to the sport shake their head in disbelief that someone can win a championship with out winning at least one race.

          • Wow, I'm going to have to catch up on this thread tomorrow.

            Right now, I'm sad. One of my main drivers (Truck Series) is without a ride.

            Boo, Randy Moss Motorsports.

            I am excited to see what a local person can do in NASCAR. Keep an eye out for Travis Pastrana.

              Yeah, I heard that, it sucks. Don't worry though, Skinner will be in another ride sooner than later.

              • NASCAR has made official the anticipated changes to how drivers are selected for the Chase and to the points system.

                The Chase will be comprised of the top ten drivers in points after the 26th race plus the two drivers with the most wins not in the top ten. They must be in the top twenty. If one or two winning drivers are not available, the next one or two in points go in.

                The points system to be used in 2011 will award 43 points to the winner and drop one point per position with 43rd place receiving one point. Bonus points for leading a lap are one and leading the most laps one. Winning the race pays a bonus of three points.

                    I'm really not sure what I think of the new points....feels awfully formula one to me, it'll for sure reward consitant finishes it'll be easy to lose points IMO but not very easy to gain them.

                    This could hurt Johnson if he has another one of those years where he barely does anthing meaninful for half the season and then starts showing up late in the season.

                        I don't mind the points change although i feel the winner should be awarded a bit more.

                        And Jimmie Johnson under this new point system would have won last year anyways. Not sure about the other seasons though.
