Afterall the talking we've done in the chats about NASCAR, you omit me in this thread, and give full credit to just you and Winstoncup as NASCAR fans around here.
My main complaint, while I like the idea behind it, is that the points leader gets his lead shrunk from up by 100's to just 5 points. Makes the "regular" season a lot less meaningful for guys who you know are going to be in the top 10(Gordon, Earnhardt, Kenseth, and that jackass Stewart).
I also agree that 10 isn't enough, at least 15 should be in. As long as they're only going to seperate each driver by 5 points each, 15th place still would have a shot at winning the Cup. Plus Kahne is quickly growing on my favorite drivers list, and it's a shame to see a season like he's had be meaningless now with 10 races to go. He was a Tony Stewart spin out away from being in the field, plus all those damn 2nd place finishes, his efforts shouldn't just be over like they are, but on the brightside, the kids got a lot more year ahead of him, a lot better ones as well.
