Nascar points folly

In a move to get more spectators and tv viewers in the fall NASCAR to make major changes to the points system, 1st 5 more points to the winner of a race, next after race #26 only the top 10 or anyone within 400 points of the current leader will race for the championship in the last ten races, the current leaders points will be adjusted to 5050 and each place back will be 5 points lower. So your favorite driver has a great first 26 races and has a bunch over the next driver the team has been cranking and everybody including the sponsoris happy, along comes race #27 and you only have a 5 point lead after all that hard work, way to go NASCAR bet after this year you loose even more fans and sponsors.

I'm not sure about this. This year will be a good test. The system could be a good idea, time will tell.

I don't like it. More points for the winner, sure, but that would be enough for me.
