More Chase changes

Thanks to a crying Jeff Gordon who went from 1st in points to 2nd:

NASCAR may give "regular-season" bonus in the future: NASCAR is considering creating a reward for the winner of the "regular season" in response to the huge points lead Jeff Gordon built before the Chase for the championship. NASCAR chairman Brian France said earlier this week he is willing to explore the idea of rewarding the driver who is leading the points at the end of the 26th race of the season. Gordon built a lead of more than 300 points, but lost all of it when the field was reset this week for the Chase for the championship. NASCAR spokesman Jim Hunter said Friday that the sanctioning body will discuss the issue during the offseason. Among the ideas being kicked around are awarding additional bonus points to be used in the seeding, more prize money or a trophy different from the Nextel Cup.(Associated Press/Yahoo Sports)(9-15-2007)

I wouldn't say he was crying... I saw the interview on Trackside, and he laughed and said they all knew what the new rules were at the beginning of the season, so he couldn't really argue with the points being changed up for the last ten races.

I think the way they do it with points now sucks.

One MORE reason why I no longer watch Nascar.
