NASCAR '09 Predictions

Mike VorndranContributor IFebruary 8, 2009

I want to first introduce who I am. I have been a NASCAR fan for 28 years. My first race was the 1980 Busch Clash at the Daytona International Speedway. I bring with me to this blog a complete understanding of the sport from a fans point of view. I was against, sort of still against, the chase format. 

I believe that the NASCAR champion should be crowned from the whole of the 36 race season. I believe consistency should be rewarded. I believe that a race winner should get at least 25 more points than second place.

I believe that they should stop rewarding bonus points for leading a lap, but give five points to the leader of the most laps. For this blog I will give my opinions on everything NASCAR. I will talk about the races. The drivers. The fans. Anything I can think of writing about. 

For my first blog I will give my thoughts on how the final point standings will turnout after 36 races.
