While I think Logano is being pushed to the front he is by no means a ALL STAR driver.I use him as a example only because this shows where NASCAR is going its all about certain sectors and not the fans or the drivers .Why not turn NASCAR into a invitation only series?That way nobody has to qualify or worry about making a race.Racing should be the Top qualifier's each week not the top 35 in point's or the top any thing in point's.When you set rules that allow driver's or teams to lay back and points race it kills the sport

Just let them all race. Keep throwing more in and all the drivers will be in it anyways. What a farce.

Chelsea, Stewart earned his way in and Logano didn't. What makes the Shootout competitive is that each driver has EARNED their spot in the race. Logano and some of the others haven't earned jack.

it is a shame that it isn't about the pole anymore.. because they gave guys more incentive to go for the pole... I hope the 48 team doesn't get a pole all season long!
