Steering wheels? Where we're going we don't need steering wheels.

I set the league up for drop scoring one year and I don't know if it was well liked. We haven't done it since then.

Yeah that sucks. Looks like the C list will once again be a desert of start 'n parkers. At least Austin Dillon is on the C list but after 9 races using him its Danica, a start 'n park or a one off entry from somebody like Michael Waltrip or Ron Fellows or something.

The B list has a lot of options though which is nice. Best looking B group in a couple years I'd say.

Joe Nemechek to MWR for the races Jeff Burton and Michael Waltrip don't run.

Yes, Front Row Joe.

I can't tell if since Jay Robinson is involved that this will be like TBR/SHR a couple years ago with the 10 or not.


Boy, that looks an awful like...dare I say it...a bracket?

Kyle Busch also said something like a win in each of the first three rounds guarantees a berth in the next round.

This assumes Brian France has common sense. Though, it is a good point, seeing as all the other sports he wants to emulate try stuff in the minors first.

So whoever wins the title is the best-finishing driver in one race. That is some premiere bullshit.

Now I want to see it in NNS because they would all but have to ban Buschwackers, unless they made it like the Dash4Cash, in which mediocrity is rewarded.

That was the first year where Jeff Gordon was irrelevant most of the season. I think he finished 9th in points and "only" won three races. Wow.

Steering wheels? Where we're going we don't need steering wheels.

I really hope whoever wins the Daytona 500 does the bare minimum to stay in the top 30 in points then somehow wins the championship. Where is the reward for consistency? We all want wins to matter more but where is the reward for being like 5th in points all year? If I understand this correctly you could be high up in the points with no wins and if 16 drivers have wins, though highly unlikely, the guy in 5th would be out?
