    Kyle Busch won the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship, so it makes sense that he's gone on record to say he likes the new Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup elimination-style format.

    That didn't stop the Joe Gibbs Racing driver from offering a tweak to the existing format, though.

    "I think there's one thing that could be added," Busch said during Champion's Week in Las Vegas. "I think we have to take care of the regular-season (points) leader. Whoever is the points leader after (the regular-season finale), I think it would be pretty neat if they got a first-round bye, for instance.

    "I think being able to accomplish that feat of leading the points is somewhat similar to the old championship format. I think you should reward that guy and not have to make them sweat for the first round."

    Uggghhhh.....could you imagine what would happen if the stick and ball sports changed their championship format as much as NASCAR?...it would be pandemonium. Or if the NFL all of a sudden decided to come up with some gimmick like if a quarterback can throw a touchdown with his non throwing hand the team will get 12 points instead of 6 in the Superbowl?...Jesus H Christ.

    Would you rather it was the way it used to be? For me, I'm inclined to lean that way, the more they mess with things, the worse it can get. Just stop and leave it be.

    Absolutely I do...I'm a traditionalist when it comes to this. I also don't like it when a team that has had mediocre performance for 35 races has a legitimate shot at winning a championship in 1 race. Of all of the chase formats, I hate this one the most.

    That is what I hate the most about it. Lets say win Daytona, rest of the year, not a top 10. But still has a shot to win it and is in the chase.

    Yep, it would be akin to a NFL team going 1-15 but still making the playoffs, and then, still only having to play half ass football to make it to the Superbowl
