Exciting NASCAR season, but is the Chase good for the sport?
 
I have to say, I have enjoyed this season more than any other season, but is the chase fair, especially in respect to the oldies like Petty? Look at Gordon, he could have snoozed to victory this year with his massive lead, but the chase put him in 2nd place to start, and now he's only 56 points up. He has had to be perfect every week too.

To be honest, I am 50/50 on it. I would like to see the points leader get more points going into the chase though, not just 10 points for each win. Maybe 40 points or more for each spot where they finished:
1- 440
2- 400
3- 360
4- 320
5- 280
6- 240
7- 200
8- 160
9- 120
10- 80
11- 40
12- 0
Granted this year the cream did rise to the top, but that won't always be the case.

Or if that's too much (seems like it is to me, but just throwing out ideas...how about this):
1- 200
2- 130
3- 100
4- 80
5- 60
6- 40
7- 30
8- 20
9- 15
10- 10
11- 5
12- 0

Then add 10 points for each win during the season.

Jsarno, you know I would have to get in on this! My opinion is this....I like the Chase and it's "PLAYOFF" like feel.....but I would give MORE points to the winner, and then trickle down from there....something like 100 points to winner, 60 to 2nd, 55 to 3rd, 50 to 4th...and so on through the top 10, but then fewer points after that.....make it a bigger deal that you actually won the race! You still get solid points for finishing well consecutively up front, but much more if you win.

Yeah, I can see that.
I just think that Gordon got punished this year...he was cruising to one of the most dominant seasons ever, and then had to come back to the pack for the "playoffs".
