NASCAR is going to have a 10-race showdown for this year's Nextel Cup championship in a bid to emphasize winning and add excitement* just don't call it a playoff.
"It's not a playoff," NASCAR chairman Brian France emphasized Tuesday after the announcement that the top 10 drivers and any others within 400 points of the leader following the first 26 races will be included in its new "Chase for the Championship."
"It's not a single elimination, a lose and you're out or a best three-out-of-five," France explained. "It still has consistency, 10 tracks and 2 1/2 months to compete, so we think we've got something that's better than a playoff."
