NASCAR - Chase for the Cup

Just want to make an observation about the Chase for the Cup. This was changed several years ago to breathe life into the late season races and the earning of the NASCAR championships. More like a playoff format.

If you really want drivers/car teams to be motivated for this make it a true playoff situation. Only the cars that qualify would be eligible to race in the final series of races. Imagine the motivation and quality of racing without all those lap cars and non-contenders!

To be sure. Just think of all the lost revenue from the also rans. That is probably why everyone still races even though there are only 10 drivers eligible for the championship. You hate when a contender is taken out because of the dubs like..um never mind. :)

Teacup-trying to be politically correct.

No need for PC when it comes to sports. Go ahead and list your dubs.
