NASCAR Needs A Road Course In The Chase—But Which One?

Justin G.Correspondent IJuly 24, 2008

NASCAR's chase has proved to provide a different look to the end of the season.

The bad about it, though, is not choosing an overall great driver.  How can you say you the best if you did not race at a road course? This is a problem that needs to be looked at.

The track choice is crucial. You need an exciting track one that will prove to be a very passing-active track. A problem we have here is the season the chase is in so you need to pick a warm setting and will not have any weather problem.

The track I would choose is Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.  This track will provide amazing racing—you come down to turn one, and it replicates the turn at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

You then get to the horsepower part of the track.  This part will prove whose cars are fast.  You'll pass turn six and then uphill to the most recognizable part of the track.  It is at the top of the hill and is known as the corkscrew—it's is a instant left and an instant right. The rest of the track is a series of tight turns. 

This track will provide the most excitement and be the best racing. I think that it should be in the chase and replace the Dickies 500, which is held at Texas. If not that, the track should be put in the regular schedule.

With a road course in the chase, we will be able to say we truly have the best driver overall.
