Just curious about who here likes the chase, who doesn't, and why or why not? I've seen a lot of people saying the chase ruined NASCAR or that it messes up the season etc.. I just don't get why all you guys hate the chase so much... do you hate the playoffs in football too? By this logic the super bowl or the world series must really send you guys into a frenzy lol. The chase is great imo .. u fight for 26 races to make the chase.. then your in the playoffs just like any other sport, and you fight for a championship... who cares if u lose ur lead and all that.. if u did well enough youll still have a lead and if ur good enough youll still have a good shot to win the championship. Plus how does it not make things more exciting for everyone? Its not like someone is gona come from 13th pace in 10 races to win the championship anyway.. and it brings the field closer together to see who's really ready to make a run at it.. it demands perfection, which is something any championship team should have. I get that a lot of you old timers just don't like change or something... but its got to be better watching 12 guys fight for 10 races to end the season than to have maybe 2 or 3 battle down to the wire. Now my opinion is somewhat biased because I never saw a season without a chase. It's always been an exciting part of the season. The loooong season that I could imagine could use that boost of excitement toward the end for all the casual fans. I`m thinking that's what started the chase. Am I right? I just want some peoples opinions on this matter. I want to see why you guys hate it so much. Try to sway me lol.
