So Newman has not won a race........and in all the races this year he has never finished a race in a higher spot than all the other competitors that were in the Chase........but somehow he qualifies for the Championship?
Meanwhile drivers that have won multiple times do not make it? Gordon that won multiple times and was going to be 1st, 2nd or 3rd in the race two weeks ago until he was taken out and then finished second last week does not qualify because someone passes someone in the back of the pack?
NASCAR has lost all credibility. There is a lot of talk about the College Football committee but there is no way they could screw up as badly as NASCAR has with this goofy system. It is going to tick off all the hard core fans and it is not going to bring in any new fans.
And that is even before seeing the results in the Final race. That has disaster written all over it. I hope the 4 left finish 35th, 37th, 40th and 41st so everyone can see how stupid it is or I hope in the last five laps they are running 2nd, 15th, 34th and 35th and some teammate of the car in 15th rubs the second place car into a wall. That should make it interesting at least.
