NASCAR changing point system

So Nascar has been talking about changing the point system for the coming season. Simply by inverting your position to points from 43 to 1 to keep it closer by the end of the season. I like it, but I don't like it. There still needs to be an incentive to win, so give 10 bonus points for a win, 5 points for leading the most laps, and TAKE OUT the 5 bonus points for leading a single lap because that is not hard to do in Nascar these days, considering you can lead one lap under caution and get credit for it. This is how I think it should go.....

1. 43+10 for winning = 53
2. 42
3. 41
4. 40
5. 39

And so on...

I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Re: NASCAR changing point system

Personally I think they should just go back to the whoever has the most points at the end of the season wins...........no stupid chase or anything....

There's a novel idea! ...and go back to different cars. The COT killed it for me....haven't watched a race in over two years.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: NASCAR changing point system

What's NASCAR??? Isn't that a type of radar?

Don't take yourself so seriously.......no one else does....

Re: NASCAR changing point system

i dont watch hardly any of it. may watch the end of the daytona 500, if i'm near a tv. dont go to any races anymore either. last race i went to was richmand bout 8 years ago, wife and i got up and went back to camper with 100 laps to go so we didnt have to fight crowd....kinda obvious at that point that we became bored with nascar.

i do follow it, read , look at website etc.

i like the idea of new point system, and agree with the 10 bonus points for winning and 5 for most laps. if you dont give the incentive to win, they will just do the play safe race for safe points thing........dont need to do any more to make it boring!

i also agree that the cot makes it look like the old IROC series, all the same car etc. you cant tell a chevy from a toyota if you take the emblem off them.

if nascar took aro dynamics out of the eqasion, they could run cars that look more like the street version. raise the the minamum hieght , put a big rear spoiler, make the minamum weight 1,000 pounds heavier and give them the horsepower back.....thats a good start!

Your never to old to learn something stupid

Re: NASCAR changing point system

I'd be all for going back to running stock bodied cars.

I'd like to see the Challenger out there again

Re: NASCAR changing point system

I almost don't even care. Almost. I'm just tired of Jimmie Johnson winning everything. Maybe a new point system will change that but I doubt it.

I'd rather it be Jimmy Johnson than Kyle Busch!
