Yes it's going to be interesting how this pan's out.
Although I am not necessarily for this,...it will 'tighten' up the field for the last ten races, eliminating any chance of a runaway title by any
Yes, it's 'made-for-TV', but last year Kenseth won the Points with one win under his belt, and alot of consistancy. Newman, won 8 races, and struggled
to keep points position, due to a few inconsistencies. With the top 10 fighting the last ten races, at least it will keep the points race interesting
to the end of the season, instead of watching the follower's for all the action.
I doubt that there will be many wrecks caused by this, as the pressure to appease the sponsors and keep points position will be greater than the
desire to instantly drop several positions so close to the end of the season due to aggressive driving.
The top ten after race 26 will be the creme of the crop, with maybe one or two rookie's with alot of skill, and they will not likely make any dumb
