Brian France is not slowing down when it comes to tinkering with the France family business otherwise known as NASCAR. France has never been shy of change since ascending to the top of NASCAR and 2011 he may be creating the most sweeping changes in the sports 50 plus year history.
France is scrapping the long time point scoring system of NASCAR for simpler version that will be easily understood by fans and NASCAR teams alike. France has also made changes to spice up the qualifying process by creating a buzz around practice. The new qualifying process will invert the top 35 drivers according to their practice speeds.
The most interesting change will be to the NASCAR Chase itself. In an effort to place more importance on winning, the final two Chase spots will go to drivers that won the most races in the first 26 races of the season. The driver will have to place in the top 20 after 26 races or they will not qualify.
