NASCAR ponders another new set of points

From where I sit it looks like NASCAR is getting more advice from the drunks...


I didn't think it was possible for NASCAR to find a way to cheapen their already ridiculous playoff system, but they seem to be trying. Expanding the field, eliminating drivers, leaving only 4 left for the final race. It's pathetic. It's already a confusing system, why are they wanting to make it harder to keep track? I'm a race fan, but certainly not a NASCAR expert. I don't keep track of 'the chase' or 'the race to the chase' or any other screwy titles they want to give to their flawed points system. Why don't they draw inspiration from the 'Cars' movie? After every race the last place driver is eliminated. It will make the race for the final positions as exciting as the dash for the checkered flag. It will save the lower teams some money by not having to travel to every race. By the end of the year there will be a hand full of drivers left. The championship goes to the winner of the final race. It's straight forward. Easy to understand. It increases focus on the lower drivers with the emphasis on the lower positions along with the top. And it makes as much sense as the garbage they are currently considering.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
