Speedweeks starts this weekend! Woot! For those of you unaware, there are some pretty big changes to...well, everything this year: • Points system is completely different. 1st place gets 43, second gets 42, and so on down to last place getting 1 point. Winning nets you three points and leading a lap gets you one. So the maximum points awarded in any given race are 48. • Qualifying is now backward. Based on practice speed, the slowest car gets the pole and so on back to the fastest car bringing up the rear. • Top ten racers after 26 races make the chase; the final two “wild cards” are determined solely based on the most amount of wins during the regular season. • The front air dam has been removed. • Body templates are going back to manufacturer specific. • “Eco-fuel” system is now in place. It’s been used in the trucks since last year (I think) and means that the catchcan man is no longer required. From now on, it’s six guys over the wall. These are just the major ones off the top of my head. Focus: All things NASCAR. Alt. Focus: I’m contemplating suicide if Johnson goes for six.
