I thought this was an interesting article on how to keep Johnson from winning six Championships in a row. The premise is that Johnson is so good on the Chase tracks that title number four is in the bag; title number five is a sure thing because the 2010 schedule is already set. That leaves NASCAR with an opportunity to stop Johnson’s roll in 2011.
There are only a couple of things I agree with in the article. The season should end at Daytona, and the “regular” season points leader should get some type of bonus.
Would any of that change things right now? Probably not, but Gordon would have the title in 2007 if not for the stupid points reset. That year Gordon went from a commanding 317 points lead to a 20 point deficit to Johnson.
