NASCAR » Old Chase, New Chase or No Chase?

A lot of the premises of this article are just plain wrong. I wouldn't say that this new format has increased the competition for the majority of teams and drivers cut from the rounds, would you?

From the beginning of motorsports it's been winner take all and the rest are just ranked as been relatively less of a loser. It wasn't until television became the cash cow of racing that the gimmicks of "entertainment" reared their ugly heads and with the gradual eroding of fan interest in gimmicks the sponsors have thinned on the ground. This has made TV even more important, so the marketers chase viewers with even more gimmicks to supposedly attract the disinterested and we have the shambles of "The Chase." It reminds me of the spectacle of a dog "chasing" it's own tail, amusing for a few seconds and then just humiliating.
