    From what I read it's checking all 4 cars to make sure, and after that a full teardown of the champ's car/engine. I could be wrong.

    They did it last couple years too. They have come out and said they are going to do very in-depth inspections on the championship cars so that they aren't changing champions on Tuesday after the race. That would be worse optics than saying someone failed Sunday night at midnight.

    We can talk all we want about formats and stuff, but it's just wasted time and typing for something that's never going to change. I grew up on the original chase format. There's some cons and pros to every format.

    I've come used to it and I'm still gonna watch, I love racing and I've got nothing to do on the weekend lol.

    There's a lot of reasons that NASCAR's struggling now, but to put it all on the playoffs is not true. 2006 was the best rated year for a reason.

    I'm happy today.

    Was Joey the most dominant car all year? No, of course not. Was he the most dominant car in the playoffs? Arguably, as he did earn the most points once the playoffs started. This is the system that NASCAR has implemented, and the system that everyone races under, and the system that has delivered the titles that the Big 3 were hoping to add to last night.

    Either way, no one can ever take away the fact that Joey Logano is the 2018 champion.

    This is the type of playoffs I've wanted for awhile. Keep the rules of the regular season the same. 3 races - top 10 advance, 3 races - top 5 advance, then have 4 races to finish the season and each track needs to be a different type. So ideally short track, road course, intermediate and I'm fine with Homestead to finish.

    In theory that could have happened in the original Latford points system as well, before they awarded the extra 5 points to the winner like 10-12 years ago.

    Driver A could have won every race while Driver B finished 2nd every race but led the most laps in every race as well. That would have given both drivers 180 points each week. If Driver A finished behind Driver B in the final race (pending laps led, of course) they would have lost the title despite winning the first 35 races.

    Likely? No. But itís just about as likely as the scenario youíre bringing up, which is to say itíll only happen in theory.

    I'm just not a fan of a final four format in the final race more than anything.

    I'm not a fan of this championship format, I don't mind the idea of a "playoff" but I wish instead of one race winner take all, you give the final four three or four races to settle it out.

    It is actually possible for someone to win the first 35 races of the year and then something out of their control happen (flat tire, blown engine etc) and lose the championship because of it.

    Definitely was not a fan of when Kyle only ran half the races and won the championship, and definitely not saying Logano didn't deserve this one but he hasn't had a championship year like Truex, Harvick, and Kyle have.
