    I fear youre wrong.

    The kids running NASCAR in 2010 will let the ratings drop to info-mercial levels before theyd admit to making a mistake about the Chase

    Honestly, I think the cars look like Shite, the GWC is garbage, the drivers are too generic & theres too many races

    But

    if theyd scrap the Chase and the Lucky dog Id be willing to forgive all the other blemishes
    I agree with you, I would rather have them lose the GWC then the Lucky dog. Would you want racing back to the line restored?

      A large # of racing fans dont like the Chase, think it IS contrived and dont care enough to see who wins what they perceive to be a manufactured closest finish in history.

      Apparently a large enough # of them are voting with their remotes every week to make the ratings drop.

      The movers and shakers in NASCAR and all their yes men and women in the racing media can ignore this fact but it doenst change the fact

      It is absolutely contrived & the fans are sending a message with their eyes & butts.

        The problem with "racing back to the line" is that most of the time they didn't race back to the line anyway.

          Job1 for me would be to lose the Chase. After that I would vote to can the Top 35 locked in BS. From there it could be the COT or the GWC or the Lucky Dog. But definately the Chase should be sh*tcanned immediately and those responsible for it should be banished to a deserted island somewhere with the Waltrip brothers for company!

            Tough to call on that one. It was exicting to see the race to the line and to see who was gonna get a lap back. But someone was gonna get hurt. Someone almost did get hurt actually
            If they cant race back to the line I say borrow one more short tracking rule and go back to the last completed lap. Theres no questioning who was where with that.

              Nascar wanted drivers to get their laps back. Nascar just didn't want to put the rule in the book.

              We wanted to continue and have all the faith in the drivers that they could still manage the gentlemen's agreement properly.
              The idea of racing only to the yellow/checker inevitably got kicked in the head by the Daytona 500 where guys were racing to the checker in the grass past an upside down car on fire.
