    Just read on Jayski that Letarte is leaving the 88 for the broadcast booth after this season. Seems they were just on the cusp of some really promising seasons too.

    Anyone have a cheatsheet for something to sort out all the drivers with their new teams...lol..

    It has gotten ridiculous with the number of drivers switching teams, #s and sponsors the past few years.

    I think there's always been a fair amount of turnover every offseason - it's the sponsors changing race to race that's hard to keep up with these days!

    all these changes - qualifying, the points - I don't know. I'll take a wait and see, but I'm never a fan of sports tinkering and NASCAR's doing a lot of it. The Chase was developed in the first place because of trying to have close finishes in the points and they've had some, and they've not had some. When will the major sports realize that things are going to play out as they are going to play out - you can't artificially create drama!

    At first glance, I'm not a fan of the changes. Could be because I grew up with winning championships on points from the first to the last race.

    I guess they throw all that out the window and go with whomever finishes ahead of the rest on that particular race.

    I have not read about the changes yet. A friend told me about the chase changes. The top 4 drivers at the last race all go back to even in a winner take all - LAME!!!

    Yeah kind of strange for a "Season Championship" to be possibly determined by one race.

    In theory you could win 20+ races during the year. You could come in second or whatever in the last race and lose the "Championship". You just had the most dominating year ever, but you are not Champion.

    ++++

    I guess they are just going for huge ratings in that last race at Homestead.

    technically not a "winner take all", more of a "best finisher out of the qualifying four drivers" take all! It does seem kind of weird that you could have a dominating year win-wise and enter the last race tied with someone who might not have won a race all year.
