Stewart's unstoppable charge to glory

It was a neat touch of symmetry. One might even have felt that such poetry was pre-ordained. Certainly in his own mind, Tony Stewart arrived at Homestead-Miami Speedway already convinced in his mind that the race and title was his by rights and that all he had to do was go out there and make it happen: and he did exactly that.

Delighted that Tony won, but what a dire points system ! How can a driver who has won half of the chase races - 5 out of 10 - finish level with a driver (Carl Edwards) who did not win a single chase race ? - something dreadfully wrong there. The best driver won - to come back from 40th and to win was amazing.
