NASCAR » Is the Chase its own worst enemy?

Should NASCAR be worried that its drivers are showing signs of tiring of the hype surrounding the Chase for the Championship?

I've never understood the excitement of looking at the points table in any sport throughout the season. Formula 1 are guilty of it too. It's like a football fan getting excited by the league table rather than the game - it never happens. Only in motorsport i think.

Surely this would still be a problem without the chase? as the above comment says it's the same in any points table situation. Jenson got endless screen time trundling round in 6th and the points situation was all anyone could talk of since Turkey!

It's a lot like baseball, which has 162 games in one season. Because there are so many games, you end up looking at stats rather than individual games. NASCAR has too many events and would benefit from reducing the number from 37 to say 20 events. No Chase would be needed if it's seen as unnecessary.
