Absolutely...The chase needs to feature one of every kind of track they race on.

Road courses are the only tracks in A$$CAR that require any driver talent. Thats why most of the lame A$$CAR drivers hate the road courses. Although those ridiculous COTs look hilarious as they try to navigate around - they look like they are gonna roll over. The cars suck so bad.

Nascar should drop the chase and go from 36 races to 32 and have the drivers take their best 30 finishes and may the best person win.

Sounds like a good idea, the "Chase" is really stupid!

Thanks WWE CRASHCAR.The Chase is over rated and if the race teams could take their best 30 finishes out of 32 you might get some of the smaller teams in the thick of it at the end of the year not just the big money teams.

I'm not a big fan of the chase myself...I like the old format where you just raced it out until the end of the season and the point leader won...who cares if the last driver to win under that format only had one victory that whole season.

Plus another one of my opinions is that if they're gonna run the chase, then it needs to be just the drivers in the chase and not the other 31 in the way.

Oh and Nascar's & Baseball's seasons need to end in September.

One of the problems with the chase and you hit it right on the nose I think is that the other 31 drivers are in the way during the chase and it goes way to late in the year.What is next for Nascar the X-Mas 500 with snow tires.

A course with only 7 turns is considered "tricky" for NASCAR drivers. hmmmm.... Why does it not surprise me.

Exactly. Those A$$CAR "pros" just have a devil of a time if they are not going in circles for 2 hours. A$$CAR is a joke, and everyone is finally finding that out. I guess fat Helton will be looking for a job soon.
