Nascarvis set to announce Monday they are making changes to the race format and point system

Biggest change is rumored to be race segments.  Should be interesting

Race segments would be a NIGHTMARE for gamblers I would think

Not sure why they would go to that.

Thought it was shit and ruined the racing when they tried it in lower series.

It could open up other betting options though I guess.

Is there a site for stat based pit crew ratings? Whoever has a top 5 car with the best crew is your winner.

Sounds pretty dumb imo. Think there will be more fluke winners using pit stop strategy, which sucks for us.

At the very least it's gonna take some time to adjust on the gambling side

No more laying back even at plate trfacks and does make every single race Inportant  even if u win and are in the chase u can't just go into test mode. And not lay back at plate tracks

Still figuring out and watching the press conference. 

May be ok just seems like it makes it tougher for us

But will def make every  race more important

Race by race this isnt gonna matter 2 much until we se the segments for each race..betting  champ just got a lot easier.  Ive been bitching for years that bonus points need to roll over into next rounds..now one bad race wont eliminate a bk or kenseth.  I might just bet championship each week and set up a massive payout in nov.

Yeah I love this for the chase and championship

Daytona points matter all the way thru race #35.  A very strong year like truex had actually matters after Rd 1 of playoff

The more I hear and understand the more i like it.

I just get nervous what it means for gambling race to race but maybe I overreacted not understand everything But think we have to see how it works out in the first few races. Especially how teams go about the pit stops

5 laps before each segment ends pit road is closed too

This is gonna make the races like 4 hours now. How long of a break is there between segments?

Having a really big regular season will be huge for the chase as well now that those bonus points will be held Until homestead

If a Chris Buescher makes it to the chase next year it will be kind of pointless as they will be so far behind in playoff bonus points 3 races leaves them zero chance to make the next round.

Might have been better to totally drop the win and your in part.

NASCAR won't allow teams to replace body panels during a race, and teams will have additional limitations on crash repair that likely will mean most drivers who have to go to the garage won't return for the remainder of the race.


Have to think about how that might affect things. I guess it helps dogs in H2H bets.
