A sampling of reaction on Twitter to NASCAR’s proposed changes to its Chase playoff format:
Jeff Burton @JeffBurton
The millions of viewers of the Super Bowl seem to enjoy a playoff system with eliminations.
Denny Hamlin @dennyhamlin
Every race will be a fight to get out of the bottom 4 of the standings. Races will play out like Richmond each race. Minus the arm scratching
Darrell Waltrip @AllWaltrip
1/2 time break, 15 min, playoff system, final 4 race for championship, seems pretty simple to me! A championship race for the championship
brant james @brantjames
Do the Four drivers eliminated each cutoff in the Chase get a farewell burnout like on american idol?
Matt Arcara @mattarcara
this is why we should do away with the chase completely. The champion should be the season’s best team.
Ben Bowers @bfbowers
winner take all at homestead is a travesty. The rest is interesting though.
The PGA tried this when they Tiger proofed the golf courses.
Eric Nelson @Nastycar4
it sounds cool. I just enjoy watching racing period. Whatever the points r they r, so long as they’re racing I’m in!
