Chase for the Cup – Texas Motor Speedway
The Nascar Chase for the Cup rolls into Texas Motor Speedway this weekend. I would love to write about how this will be a special race, but the truth is it is not. Jimmie Johnson has pretty much wrapped up another championship, sure there is still a chance he could finish last in every race, but that won’t happen. Nascar needs to re visit the Chase for the Cup and adjust this thing again, whether it is to shorten the amount of races, or to lower the amount of points awarded per win. The problem is that this is not fair to the fans who have already purchased tickets to the Dickes 500. They will be watching a race that has no outcome on the Chase for the Cup, because it has already been won. Now I am not saying that people will not go and enjoy the pre race festivities and post race party, but I think that the attendance and TV ratings would enjoy a boost if all of the supposed “playoff races” somehow had an effect on the Championship.
