    Determines positions 3 through 43 for the Daytona 500. Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson have clinched the 1-2 spots in Sunday's Daytona 500, thanks to finishing 1-2 in last Sunday's qualifying round.

    This might finally be the year a Toyota driver wins. Kenseth has looked strong, won the Bud Shootout last Saturday night

    I love the new chase format. They reset all points to zero after 35 races and the winner of the final race is the champion.

    I hate DW and Larry McReynolds. Maybe I'll watch it on mute.

    The final ten races are tough on the drivers in the Chase. Harvick basically said he was relieved as much he was excited about the season being over when he won the title.

    It's great for the fans, though, I agree. Gordon might have won it last year if he hadn't had that skirmish with Keselowski

    I'm a fan (or was) and I hate it.
    Any system where potentially a driver could win the first 9 races of the chase, finish 2nd in the finale and not be champion is FUCKING STUPID.

    Will they all dance a jig around the bonfire while Pa plays his fiddle, after the race is over?

    What's the over/under on how many times McReynolds says "the top 35 cars are separated by just 1.1 seconds" or similar. We get it, it's a restrictor plate race, cars are bunched together. It's nothing new.

    Dead kid would be fine too if he didnt get out of his car to chase race cars on foot.
