I love short track racing with all my heart

- A short track somewhere
Brian France must've gone "hiking" in Colorado.
Don't give them any ideas.We can only hope there is a hungry bear in the area. Those things love to eat stupid.
We are a step away from spinning a wheel before each chase race so some luck fan gets to throw shoes in front of cars and eliminate drivers until we're down to the required 16.
I think NASCAR is headed in the right direction with this forward thinking.
First it was ten drivers, then twelve. Last year it was thirteen drivers and this year it will be sixteen.
In another year or two, the chase will have 43 drivers in it...
I can tell you he wouldn't have won in 2006...he crashed in the first Chase race at Loudon and finished 39th so that would have eliminated him almost immediately. The eliminations after every three races guarantee one fluke finish can make or break your season.Jimmie Johnson will win anyway so who gives a ****
HEY, THAT'S MY IDEA !!!
Seriously, I came up with a similar elimination format a few years ago . . . . . . . as a joke.
So after seeing MWR trying to fix things to get their cars into the Chase, now we'll get to see what car owners will do to pick up a few points to keep their cars from being eliminated after the 3rd, 6th and 9th races.
So basically last season Clint Bowyer and Dale Jr. should not have been in the chase because they didn't win a race but David Ragan who is only competitive at restrictor plate races would of have a spot reserved.
4 of the 13 drivers in last year's chase didn't have a win coming into it.
