Bonkthat_Again: I HATE the fact it's possible for a driver to win every race of the season except Homestead, and not be crowned the Champion.I also hate the fact that the most vanilla track on the circuit determines the championship.
OtherLittleGuy: Yet they find and deduct and suspend for fights and swearing.Just go full WWE, Bri. Halfway through, have a full-scale brawl. Milk the storyline to the last race, even if the Cup Championship is locked up. My God, even get a one-shot with the guys from "Top Gear:UK". Have the Stig claim to be Danica's long lost love.I want to be sports entertained. Get better writers.
Adolf Oliver Nipples: You know, when the Chase came around I originally thought that it was a pretty good idea. Then I saw how it played out.Go back to the old points system. It worked well for 30 years, and there wasn't any real controversy over it. NASCAR has lost ratings and interest over the last decade, bring back what worked.Or, if you prefer, continue to make it more and more like the WWE. That ought to put butts in the seats.
jack_o_the_hills: Ahhh..another gleaming drop of brilliance from the coke and booze addled mind of Mr France..
Professor Farksworth: Here's my questioning and I have a similar one for the new qualifying.Let's say we get to Homestead and go into turn one on Lap 30 of whatever, and there's a huge wreck. Sparks, smoke, ballyhoo, Dave Moody hemorrhaging a testicle, the whole nine yards. The pack of cars slides down the embankment, into the grass, and wedged firmly in the middle of this mass of twisted metal are the four Championship Contenders. All three obviously out and unable to finish. What happens then? Do they get out backup cars? Is it a tie?
crotchgrabber: I've been trying to come up with the worst scenario for this chase format. Here's what I came up with...a-A fairly popular driver goes on a Vettel like tear, winning say 14 of the 26 races.b-said driver wrecks out of the first three chase eventsc-Ambrose wins Watkins Glen and Danica wins a rain shortened plate trackd-well... just let your imagination go from there. But in the end Timmy Hill gets the cup.
StormChaser: I see Homestead turning into the world's largest, most expensive demolition derby ever.
smerfnablin: Bonkthat_Again: I HATE the fact it's possible for a driver to win every race of the season except Homestead, and not be crowned the Champion.I also hate the fact that the most vanilla track on the circuit determines the championship.Sponsors will leave the sport if this happensCan you imagine dale jr winning like 16 races this season and then Danica crashing into him leaving the pits at homestead ending in kyle Busch winning the championship?Fans would tar and feather France right on the infield
nekom: Wow. Since I started following NASCAR (2001ish) it's gotten worse and worse but this is a new low. This idea is bad and they should FEEL bad.
DanZero: I submitted this with a slightly similar headline, but without that McMahon-ish tinge that B.O.F. is famous for.Meh@NascarMemesWith current events being what they are in NASCAR, there's no time like the present for a new series sponsor.[pbs.twimg.com image 600x600]It's all good, we'll remain sports entertained, and we better LIKE IT so sayeth the FRENCHMAN
