Tony Stewart on the Chase format
On this week's edition of "Tony Stewart Live" on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio, .Stewart talked about the potential changes to the format for the Chase for the Nextel Cup, which will reportedly include an increase in the number of drivers and an increase in points awarded for a win.
Tony Stewart: "I still think it should only be 10 [drivers]. I mean, what's next? It goes from 12 to 15 two more years down the road and then it goes from 15 to 20 and this and that? No more than 12. It shouldn't have been more than 10 to begin with. That's a quarter of the field. Why do we need to bring in more than that? But I do like the idea of 10 more points [for a win].
"I think the one thing that hasn't been talked about that I keep bringing up...is give the top 10 guys in the Chase their own points structure. Yes, they are racing the other 33 guys for the win but they are racing the other nine guys for the championship so give them their own points structure and let them get their points accordingly."
"Tony Stewart Live" airs every Tuesday (8-10pm ET) exclusively on SIRIUS NASCAR Radio / Channel 128. The full program will re-air Saturday (7am ET & 8pm ET) on channel 128.
