    Hypothetical situation. For simplicity lets number the chase drivers 1 through 16. In each of the first 3 races drivers 13, 14, 15 and 16 all crash on the 1st lap and cannot continue. Ten laps later, driver 2 blows an engine and cannot continue. Driver 1 wins all 3 races. Points are reset equally for drivers 1 through 12. Then in each of the next 3 races, drivers 9, 10, 11 and 12 all crash on the 1st lap and cannot continue, and 10 laps later driver 2 crashes and cannot continue. Driver 1 wins all 3 races. Points are reset equally for drivers 1 through 8. In the next 3 races drivers 5, 6, 7 and 8 are all involved in a crash on the 1st lap and cannot continue. Driver 2 blows an engine 10 laps later and cannot continue. Driver 1 wins all 3 races. Points are reset equally for drivers 1 through 4. In the final race, drivers 1, 3 and 4 are all involved in a crash on the 1st lap and cannot continue. Twenty laps later, driver 2 blows an engine and cannot continue. So driver 2 wins the championship with 10 DNFs in the chase and driver 1, with 9 wins and 1 DNF does not.

    I know this is an extreme example, but really???????

    I think that NASCAR is trying to completely ruin the sport! Why don’t you just go back to letting the Good Old Boys race from the first race to the last one with the driver with the most points is champion. It can’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out.. The fan base is getting smaller and if you can’t see it you must be blind. The way things are going now NASCAR will pick one driver at the starting of the season, before the first race, and make him the champion for that year and just forget about the racing.

    […] here’s PDF that gives you a pretty clear idea how the Chase works. Here’s some more wording about how the 2014 Chase works. This post isn’t really about how the Chase works so I’ll move […]

    why not make the points work like golf? first place gets one, second place two, third place three, and so on, and the ones who dont qualify get 45 points added. lowest at the end of the season wins

    Nascar people changing the chase procedure are idiots. Leave it alone – the one with most points is champ – why fix something that isn’t broken! You are ruining Nascar – you could do something for constructive like keeping the hot heads under control
