FINALE IS WORKING
Could anyone have asked for more nail-biting
than we had in the respective winner-take-all
season finales for the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series,
XFINIT Y Series and Camping World Truck Series?
All three races were full of drama and intrigue
from start to finish, and in the case of the Sprint
Cup Series and the XFINITY Series, a driver had to
win the race in order to win the championship.
The Cup Series finale was particularly thrilling as
all four championship finalists – Jimmie Johnson,
Joey Logano, Kyle Busch and Carl Edwards – spent
time out front and had a real shot at walking away
with the hardware. Just about anyone would have
been hard-pressed to write a more epic script than
Johnson scoring a history-making seventh championship after leading just three laps and trailing all of
his fellow title contenders for most of the race.
In summation: The concept of the Championship
4 is a winner from top to bottom, and NASCAR
should be commended for finally deciding to use
the format in all three major series.
