The old system was heckuva lot better. Right now 24 would be long gone with it and have his 7th title wrapped up. He has been shorted on 2 other titles since the points changed. The new system is terrible.

Opinions???

I think the new system is perhaps better for those very reasons. Running away with the title kind of deflates the confidence of everyone else, and then the Chase becomes rather boring. Not saying that this Chase is all that riveting, but face it, with the old system, only the die-hard fans would be watching past August.

I don't like how you race all year to get in and if you just have one bad thing happen such as blow a motor or flat tire it can put you out of it.

i like the old system better,stuff happens but its like starting the year over again & if your not consistant for the last 10 races even though you have been for the last 25 tuff.why not break it down further-5 best then 3 best then down to the last 1,keep leveling the playing field til who you want to win wins,mike243

I love the Chase format. It has added a ton of interest to the end of the season. Before the Chase was implemented, I usually lost interest in NASCAR a couple weeks after Labor Day. Not anymore.

All other sports (except big time college football) have a playoff. No reason NASCAR shouldn't.

well if you are going to make 10 the only ones that can win,send the other drivers home & just let the 10 play,no need for the other drivers to mess up the ones in the chase,game over go home till next year,top 10 finishers go on then the top 5 ect...why not make it like the race of champions ?oh wait C.O.T. are the only cars allowed next year,mike243

This point system results in a 10 race season for 12/13 drivers. Liked it the old way better.

I still think they need more points awarded for the winner and a bigger discrepency for a top 10 finish.

JR would have never won under the old points system. Thats why I believe it changed. I really really wonder what SR would have thought about the new chase format?
