    I wonder if "Nationwide is on Your Side" right now to offer salt overindulgence insurance from fans pissed off that Gordon didn't win the championship, a Toyota winning said championship, and those who suddenly hate the format now despite the fact that someone could have done what Kyle did last year as well.

    It's funny how NASCAR's rule implemented to begin the season was not once enforced.

    Not Harvick?

    Time to get the party started.

    Well when your top drivers are Menard and Newman, little surprise.


    Actually who won the Owners pts?

    Would be the 18 car, the chase follows the same format

    18 was already in top 20 before Busch came back.

    Owners points follows chase format.

    Congrats to Kyle. Regardless of the situation he drove his butt off. His championship was a long time coming, also cool to see Jeff lead in his last race.

    Who would have won had there been no chase at all (not even the old format)? I'm guessing it would have been Logano or Harvick, so a bad result.

    Harvick on points, barring a horrible finish by him and a win by Logano.

    (I think.)

    Harvick had 20+ points over Logano going into today's race if the non-chase points format was used.

    I think it would have been Harvick, but it doesn't matter since people would have been salty regardless.

    I like NASCAR, but I don't think I like it enough to watch 90 minutes of post race after a Kyle Busch win :lol:

    KB's first chase win and just when it mattered most. You can dislike it, but it was a great drive, no doubt.

    To be fair, Erik Jones was already compensated for his effort on Friday ;)

    Congrats to Kyle Busch it's been a long time coming.

    However I still hate this format.
    Our champion according to the old points system came into the final race 20th in points.

    With this format he was more of a September-November Champion than a 2015 Champion.

    Holy crap, it just dawned on me:

    -Kyle wins his first cup title ten years after his brother Kurt did (Also the last time NBC covered a NASCAR race).
    -JGR gives Toyota its first title in the same race that MWR, the original team that brought them here, competes for the last time

    NBC had NASCAR until 2006
