Matito Posted November 22, 2010 Share Posted November 22, 2010 3. NASCAR fans don't like the chase.That is one of my biggest issues with the whole thing. I found a poll a couple weeks ago (too tired to look for it now) that asked fans input about the Chase when it was first proposed at the end of 2003. I think it was something like 50% of fans did not want to see any change from the pre-Chase points system, and of the 50% that said they would be open to a points change, around 80% of those fans said they did not want the Chase. Couple that with some direct quotes from Brian France in this article, and it's no wonder why nobody likes France.As usual, France's ideas about the sport and his evaluation of its current health is much different than many fans. That's to be expected, given his role and history.But what stunned me was that France ? who has tried to be more engaged than ever by holding "town hall" meetings with drivers and follows the results of a 12,000-member Fan Council ? seemed to have no clue what many fans think.For example: France was incredulous and seemed genuinely taken aback when a reporter asked him about the many fans who don't like the Chase."You've met somebody that's telling you that?" he asked, as if such people were as rare as a unicorn.
