For some reason I keep thinking maybe the old format would better serve the FranceCar nation!

Bruce Simmons

Giving the chase contenders their own points system does not change a single thing. Whether they race for 180 points, or 12 points, the results are the same. Same winner, same 2nd place, etc.. A separate points system would be moot except to fabricate a close points race for TV ratings.


Bruce, I agree that it would artificially create a closer ponits race - top to bottom - with the Chasers. What Waltrip's point system would do, is give the highest finishing Chase driver, 12 points - whether he actually finished first in the race or 20th. It creates a race within a race and makes the non-Chase competitors irrelevent. That's what I don't like.
George, I do think that - most years - the Chase format will creat more championship interest throughout the season.
