Alright, Fine I'll admit, I'm gonna be there for the 500. Let's see Harvick Dominate this season.

Pretty much a kind of dull finale that honestly peaked with the pageantry at the beginning.

Kyle Busch champion....only in Nascar.

You know something...

I'm not upset that Kyle Busch is a Sprint Cup Champion, I'm upset in the way he won it, being given eligibility for the chase after missing the first 11 races due to breaking his leg in the Xfinity at Daytona. Granted that was unfortunate, but this was something NASCAR has wanted to happen the whole year since then, at look what happened, they got what they wanted.

And also, regardless and whether you like Jeff Gordon or not, it's sad to see him retire from full-time racing in NASCAR. I always liked him when I first started watching the Cup Series back in 2005, as he was without doubt a true legend of the sport and always will be. He has been an incredible ambassador for everybody, for his crew members, his team, fellow drivers, fans and the people of NASCAR. He will be missed for sure.

By pageantry you mean Jeff Gordon's racist kid more than any of the festivities? Razz

Alright, I may take the unpopular opinion here... But if you are going to do a Chase based on wins (Which like you guys, I am against) you have to let in the drivers that won a race. Kyle Busch won a race.

Now that does open up a whole new can of worms, lets say the Daytona 500 winner, decides "Oh, I am in the chase, I won't race till the chase." However that would be his right, because he won a race. It'd be crappy, but it'd be his right. The boundless ambiguity with this Chase is really annoying, and it seems like NASCAR doesn't even know what they are doing, so they just make up stuff as they go along to keep up with it.

If they wanted to do a win and your in Chase format, they would have to almost add a "you must race at least this many races to be eligible" rule.

Kyle won this title fairly (surprising huh?), he missed 11 races. Yeah, but he was told you must be in the top 30 in points. He did that. You must have a win to advance. He got 4 of them. You must be in the top 12 at the end of first round; he was. You must be in the top 8 at the end of the second round; he was. You must be in the top 4 at the end of the 3rd round; he was. You must finish the best of 4 at Homestead; he did.

What makes it a farse title to some (I like that he won, TBH), is the fact he missed 11 races. But, what's the difference between that and finishing 43rd in those 11 races? Would there still be as big a stink?

Yes, the system is flawed (majorly), but you can't fault Kyle for doing what was asked of him. He did everything that he had to.
