I don't see much changing. The same guys will be racing. Once in awhile a no name will make the starting lineup. Past champions will be guaranteed a stating spot as long as more than one doesn't qualify. So Jr oops...
The top six teams in owner points will get a starting spot. So if one of the top six teams has a guy that doesn't qual they will still be in the starting lineup. Don't expect NASCAR to start a race without JJ, Junior, Gordon, Stewart, Hamlin and a few others.

Short track racing is still a sport. Nascar patterned after the WWF and has abandoned the sport aspect and turned it into a big expensive business instead. The public has had to make the decision to either spend money going to races or putting groceries in the kitchen and gas in the tank.
