Therein lies the rub with this whole Chase points system which seems like it could have been conceived by Rube Goldberg and Dr. Seuss after a long night of washing down acid tabs with cheap tequila in a fleabag motel overrun with nickel hookers. There are currently four drivers who havenâ€™t won a single race who are qualified for a title Chase. Meanwhile one of the two drivers who have won four events is on the outside looking in. Currently if Kyle Busch were to make the Chase heâ€™d start the Chase tied for the lead with Mark Martin. If he fails to do so he can finish no better than thirteenth in the standings. Three other drivers who have won points races are also going to miss the Chase. Matt Kenseth, who won the race that NASCAR terms â€œOur Super Bowl,â€ is in danger of missing playoff contention.

What do you guys and gals think of these Scenarios?
Just consider: If Jr. had four wins this season and didn't make the chase. What if Mark has problems and doesn't make the chase?
