It’s Chase Time!

It’s time for the Sprit Cup Chase to begin, and as usual, I’m showing my support for Kyle Busch.

Let’s take a look at this new chase format. It might be easier for many to follow, since it’s similar to the way other sports do their championship finals, but for some, it’s confusing. Let’s try to make it a little less confusing….

The first round (Chicagoland, New Hampshire and Dover) will be called the "Challenger Round." If a driver in the Chase Grid wins a Challenger Round race, the driver automatically advances and their points will be reset to 3,000. Only the top 12 in points after the Challenger Round remain in championship contention.

The second round (Kansas, Charlotte and Talladega) will be called the "Contender Round." Likewise, if a driver in the top 12 in points wins a race in the Contender Round, the driver automatically advances and his/her points will reset to 4,000. Only the top eight in points after the Contender Round remain in championship contention, and all then will have their points reset to 4,000.

The third round (Martinsville, Texas and Phoenix) will be called the "Eliminator Round." If a driver in the top eight in points wins a race in the Eliminator Round, the driver automatically advances and his/her points will reset to 5,000. The top four in points after the Eliminator Round remain in championship contention, and all then will have their points reset to 5,000.

The final race of the year at Homestead-Miami Speedway will now be referred to as the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship. To win the Sprint Cup title, be the highest finisher at the end of the race among the four eligible drivers, and you will lift the Sprint Cup.

Got it? Make more sense now? Good.

 

Who you got?
