After his third championship in a row, I started to refer to the Sprint Cup Series (or whatever it was called at the time) as "The Jimmie Johnson Show". I'm not bashing the 48 team so keep your knickers on, but the 48 team found a formula for success and the system at the time allowed that formula to work perfectly. My problem with the elimination style Chase is that you can have a team that just barely makes the Chase on points, squeaks by in each Chase race and perhaps win the last race to be crowned the champion. With this system, Wombat makes a good point. One race and crown whoever wins that race as this year's champion and be done with it. There must be a better way.
