The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Chase for the Championship begins in less than two weeks. The playoffs open in Chicago and wrap up 10 weeks later in Miami.
But are those the best tracks to start and finish the playoffs? And what about the eight tracks in between? Are they the right choices to host an all-important playoff race?
In an ideal situation, NASCAR's Chase would consist of an equal mix of short tracks and superspeedways that combine afternoon races with a handful of night races.
The last 10 races of the year should not only challenge the drivers at a variety of tracks, but it should also be set up to give the fans the best and most competitive playoffs in all of sports.
So what would the ultimate 10-race playoff look like?
In the slides ahead we will answer that question by designing our very own "Dream Chase" schedule.
