Its that time again folks, the racing season is about to begin and with a lot of changes with teams, qualification and possibly the chase. This should be an interesting year in Sprint cup, Jimmie has 6 and we have a strong rookie of the year class with Austin Dillon bringing back the 3 & Kyle Larson coming in just to name a few. Plus with Harvick & Kurt Busch going to Stewart Haas, Truex Jr. going to Furniture Row. This should be an interesting season. Let's however get started with the rumor with the chase... Via Jayski Chase Scenario: NASCAR is planning a vast restructuring of the points system in its premier Sprint Cup Series that would greatly emphasize winning races and feature eliminations in its Chase playoff system, according to multiple sources briefed on the plan this week. In addition to expanding the Chase field from 12 to 16 drivers, a win in the season's first 26 races would virtually ensure a driver entry into the championship Chase. If there were more than 16 winners, the 16 with the most wins and highest in points would gain entry. Once the Chase field was set, a round of eliminations similar to the NCAA tournament would take place after the third, sixth and ninth race of the Chase, culminating with the championship determined by a winner-takes-all season finale at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Under the proposed system - which could still change before an expected announcement later this month - winning would become virtually a necessity to make the Chase and win the championship. Qualifying: NASCAR has scheduled a teleconference with Robin Pemberton, Vice President of Competition and Racing Development for NASCAR, to discuss changes to NASCAR qualifying in 2014. The conference is scheduled for 4:00pm/et. Details could be released prior to that. So thoughts?
