  8. Terry Blount: Tweaking the Chase points may not do any good

    Terry Blount

    LOUDON, N.H. -- Giving the Chase drivers their own points race (first through 12th) wouldn't work. It sounds good, but when you do the math, it doesn't change a thing. Had that idea been in place last year, Jimmie Johnson still would have won the t...
