Would it be a HOOT that the 4 contenders had a big wreck in the first 10 laps!! Then we could watch a good real race for the 'season' winner.

Interesting, senecio. It would then become a race to see who of the four could repair their car the fastest and get back out and log laps.

Sitting in front of the TV. Harvick was put a great season together and deserves the Championship, but I will still cheer for the Fords!!! ��

Good to see the "Rocket Man" in the thick of things. He's always been a competitor and a humble guy.

Listening to each of these guys I think Hamlin & Harvick are best poised to grab this thing! Hopeful that the four of them can stay clear of the other 39 blockades! I like really like Newman but I am afraid that he just doesn't have the momentum to get there.

Personally I disliked the Chase, but now that they made it an elimination arrangement, thus adding desperation instead of quietly chasing points, I actually like it.

I'd like to see them carry it further, the last four races are nothing but the top 16, then 12, then 8, then a four car 50-100 lap finale just like the showdown. Finishing order determines the championship.

I've given up on all ball sports. Don't watch em. NASCAR is all I got left and no matter how the chase is determined, I still watch it dang near every Sunday. Its when I cook and enjoy time with the misses. Its like when folks were sayin that if Johnson wins another championship, they were giving up on NASCAR. Hey, what ever you wana do, as nothing is perfect. They are trying to keep things interesting even if I don't agree with this format. So grab a cold one (or a hot toddy) fire up the grill and lets go racin!

Although the final four will need to steer clear of the "Big One" most likely it will be that little bump that derails the run for these guys. We have 39 other guys trying to hang on to or acquire a better ride for next year. That alone will cause them to push the envelope and take someone out of the race.

I like this format. There is more of reason to be racing now. Winning now gets you something, to include racking to the end of the race instead of like in the past where you could lay back on the last few races and finish in whatever spot you needed to in order maintain your series lead. I'm a Gordon fan, and have been since his first race as a rookie. I was a "rookie" at the time, watching the 1993 Daytona 500 and he was the first rookie announced in the starting lineup, so I chose him. I now have an infield campsite for the 500 and a backstretch campsite at Chicagoland. Rooting for Harvick today.

I wonder if flaring my TT fenders like Hamlin and Logano would improve mileage and downforce???
