It has been widely speculated for weeks, that NASCAR is planning on implementing a new points system for the upcoming season. An official announcement will be made on Wednesday, but it is assumed that the points system will change from its current format to one where the winner would receive 43 points, with each position earning one point less, all the way down to 43rd place, which would be worth a single point.
While there is no doubt that the new proposed point system would simplify things at least a little bit, it wouldn't all be rosy. Just like any other changes, there are always pluses and minuses. While I would personally be in favor of something similar to what is being discussed, I will look at 10 reasons why the new points system might not be such a great thing after all.
