At this rate, I'm inclined to believe that within the next five to ten years, the state of nascar will be very grim. To emphasize that point, I am connected a few facebook pages of tracks that the tour races on i.e. Daytona, New Hampshire (My local track), and Sonoma and I am not lying when I tell you that the vast majority of comments that you could find on those pages contain just outright negative and/or angry criticism directed towards the sanctioning body, management etc, etc. The fans are finally smartening up and calling out nascar on their horsepuckey, took them almost a decade.

Unless something changes quick, or the powers that be make some wholesale changes that would revitalize the series (doubtful), then nascar has a dark future ahead of itself.

Yeah, I am done with the series. I'll follow Chase "in the papers" and I'll maybe watch the races I'm interested in, but that's it. I'm out.

I think there's something of a natural decline with NASCAR even if they stuck out with the original formula. It's just a pity they have to wreck the sport in a futile effort to arrest that decline. Instead it'll only quicken the fall.

Sprint will be in the last year of their sponsorship of the series. It will be interesting to see when they announce a replacement. Also, what Nascar does with dealing with the team ownership group headed by Rob Kauffman.

I also wonder if Roush can come back to their previous form.

Has anybody computed what the 2015 top 10 points table would have been if the pre-chase scoring system had been used? I would like to know who the real champion would have been.

PabloTeK should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
From Jasyski's site:

1) #4-Kevin Harvick(C1), 1321
2) #22-Joey Logano(EC), 1299, -22
3) #2-Brad Keselowski(EC), 1217, -104
4) #88-Dale Earnhardt Jr. (EC), 1198, -123
5) #78-Martin Truex Jr.(C4), 1165, -156
6) #48-Jimmie Johnson(EC), 1155, -166
7) #11-Denny Hamlin(EC), 1117, -204
8) #24-Jeff Gordon(C2), 1110, -211
9) #41-Kurt Busch(EC), 1108, -213
10) #19-Carl Edwards(EC), 1108, -213

IMO points should only be handed out for the top 20, with a larger margin from 1st to 2nd.

Greetings everyone. I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas! You know, we're only 57 days away from the 2016 Daytona 500! Time is really going by fast. I'm wondering it isn't time to start the 2016 Sprint Cup Season thread. I will not do it, as I believe someone already has that honor. I'm not going to jump them. Just wondering though. Y'all have a great day.

Many thanks, PabloTeK.

So Joey Logano would have been the real champion if Kenseth the moron hadn't wrecked him at Martinsville.

Speaking of the coming 2016 season, first time for the all digital
dash board. This is kind of a big deal. Gone will be the analog dials
affixed in the dash so that all the pointers would align at 12 oclock
if everything was nominal. Most drivers will be use to the setup from
their sportscar stints but nonetheless a pretty big change.

Kurt Busch was testing a digital dash at Darlington in Autumn, so at least he knows how it works in race conditions. Don't know if that will be an advantage for Stewart-Haas or no.

Totally agree but not going to happen in the everyone-wins-a-prize world that there is now.

NASCAR has been giving points to every starter since like, the 50's.
