Report: NASCAR looking at radical change to points system
January 18, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
NASCAR is considering a radical change to its points system, one in which a 16-driver Chase for the Sprint Cup would be whittled down to four drivers who would all be tied going into the final race.
The proposed change was reported Friday night by The Charlotte Observer.
NASCAR is expected to announce changes to its points structure and qualifying on Jan. 30. Its annual meetings with industry personnel and teams are scheduled for the days leading up to that date. Potential Chase formats are still being discussed and no final decisions have been made.
