Not many good texas drivers left.I thought Terry was a pretty decent person. Oh, may I mention on lap 196 during caution Tony was warned not to bump draft the pace car.The pace car is a Corvette.

The chase sucks , period . Put it back the way it was. The championship should be a total of how you run the whole season, not 10 races. This isn't football.

I've heard there are some changes coming to the chase next year, but I don't think it'll be like it was.

I'm hearing NASCAR will allow racers up-to 500-points back be-included.....
:eyerole

Since NASCAR always talks about Top 5s, Top 10s, and Top 20s in their finishes, why-not spread-out the points awarded more than they do now?

I'd propose a 20-point gap between each position from #1 thru 5, a 10-point gap between 6 and 10, 5 point-gap between 11 and 20, and the current 3-point gap between each position from 21st back:

MAKE these guys want to pass cars, instead of riding-around, content with an 8th place finish.
