NASCAR Rule Changes: 2011 Changes to the Points System and More

Whether you like it or not, NASCAR has made changes every year. The major changes over the years have come to make the Chase better. They have gone from 10 cars to 12, added bonus points for winning in the regular season and now have instituted the biggest change since 1975.

NASCAR made the announcement to change the points system, qualifying and rules that won't allow drivers to gain points in a series that they do not claim as their primary series.

As always, anything that NASCAR does comes with criticism and applause.

I, for one, like the changes NASCAR has made for the 2011 season. They have listened to fans and have brought an aspect of simplicity to racing, which will bring a new type of excitement to the regular season.

Either way, the changes are here to stay. Here are the changes in no particular order.
