Kansas Speedway Excited With NASCAR Chase Overhaul


NASCAR announced today sweeping changes to the format for the 2014 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup. During its stop on the annual NASCAR Sprint Media Tour, NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France outlined an exciting, compelling and easy to understand formula for crowing the Sprint Cup Champion.

“We are extremely excited with the changes announced today,” said Kansas Speedway President Pat Warren. “Great competition is all about winning, and the new championship structure puts unprecedented emphasis on winning races. The best drivers and teams in the world compete in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series, and the format ensures that our fans see the best racing in person at Kansas Speedway.”

Changes announced by France to the championship format include:

- A victory in the first 26 races all but guarantees a berth in the 10-race Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup – a change that will put an unprecedented importance on winning a NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race all season long

- Expanding the Chase field from 12 to 16 drivers, with those drivers advancing to what now will be known as the NASCAR Chase Grid

- The number of championship drivers in contention for the NASCAR Sprint Cup championship will decrease after every three Chase races, from 16 to start in the Chase Grid; 12 after Chase race No. 3; eight after Chase race No. 6; and four after Chase race No. 9

- The first three races of the Chase (27-29) will be known as the Challenger Round; races 30-32 will be known as the Contender Round; races 33-35 will be the Eliminator Round and race No. 36 will be the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship

- A win by a championship-eligible driver in any Chase race automatically clinches the winning driver a spot in the next Chase round

- Four drivers will enter the NASCAR Sprint Cup Championship with a chance at the title, with the highest finisher among those four capturing the prestigious NASCAR Sprint Cup Series championship.
