This point system results in a 10 race season for 12/13 drivers.


There is a little more to it than that. The non-chasers are still winning races and money as well as trying to finish in the top 35. Also, the driver that finishes 13th gets a very nice bonus.

Want to talk about stupid rules? The top 35 points rule for qualifying is the stupidest rule in sports. I wish NASCAR would at least drop it to a top 15 or top 20 rule.

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

Definitely trying to keep Gordon from getting 7!! If they hadn't changed the system when they did he would have #7 wrapped up this year!

They should have kept the old system,but added 50 points for a win.Get rid of bonus points for leading a lap and leading the most laps.I've always thought that it's retarded that 2nd can get the same points as the winner.AND GET RID OF THE TOP-35 NONSENSE!Drive your way into the race,like they do in NHRA.

Amen! Waltrip was 18th fastest at Dega in the spring and didn't make the race on speed. That's ridiculous!

With more parity coming with the COT, the top 35 is going WAY too deep in the field.

I think there will be some changes, but how much pride can NASCAR swallow? I doubt they will back it up any further than the top 25. Also, the entire group of cars that aren't locked in should go out first. That way if qualifying is rained out, a better decision on who makes the field can be made.

Now that juniors with hendrix he will be expected to perform he'll have the cars but will he have the talent!


You guys are so freakin' funny. NASCAR loves Gordon. What earthly reason would they have to keep him from getting 7? So he won't pass Earnhardt? Give me a break...you guys are too much.

It is reality. Go back and look at the system since they started the "chase" crap. If you do the math on the races at where they were at the 10 race cutoff and look at where Gordon ran the remaining races he would already have #7 locked up this year. The system is terrible and really needs to be gutted and reworked. Better yet, throw it out and go back to the OLD SCHOOL.

The old system was far more rewarding to the drivers and crews who had their stuff together through out the season. I'm not a big fan of the present point system or the 35 rule either.
