Hidden: Nascar Needs To Tweak There Point System: With Johnson and young Busch crashing early in the race sunday, there chances of winning the Cup are very remote.I don't care if you like Hendricks Motor Sports or not, Nascar has to tweak there system. This could happen to Roush, Everham DEI or the Penske teams

If they're there and their system isn't there then they're not there are they?

An easier solution might be for the drivers to tweak their non-crashing system.

I recommend also tweaking punctuation and spelling.

From Section II, Paragraph 2 of The Guidelines:

A good FPP is a link with a brief description of what the link is about, and that's it. Don't editorialize on the front page. Biased posts make for biased discussions. Personal opinion belongs inside the thread.

How do they need to tweak it?Give those who crash out 100points.You say they need to change it but offer no idea on how to change.It probably doesn't matter cause as soon as they change it you'll find something that you still don't like about it.I probably misspelled or forgot a period or comma,sorry Tieguy.WE should think of you while were typing.

They don't tweak the system if you crash in the Daytona 500. Wrecking is a part of Nascar and that is the chances everyone takes. The points are fine as they are. If there was no Chase, Kenseth would have a 150 point lead over Johnson and 300+ on everyone else. You would have 2 guys in contention and that is it. At least everyone still has a chance with 9 to go.

As a buisness model NASCAR has done very well. As far as the sport of stock car racing goes it is a complete failure. It is loosing a lot of its older fans and it won't be long before NASCAR will be suppling the complete car to make everything even with no incentive for the drivers and crews to try to win a race.

Could you feature the NFL changing their point system? Lets give 4 points for a field goal 8 points for a touch down. What's the point, if it's not broke don't fix it. NASCAR is doing this for the sake of making money. Oh by the way the NBA needs to give 4 points for a half court shot.

If someone wins 8 cup titles with a new point system, how could the compare them with Dale Earnhrt and Richard Petty?

For briredd61-You must be a younger guy that has never seen a real stock car race where you could actually tell the brand of car without having to read it on the front end.
