After the complete fiasco that has occurred this week following the alleged manipulation by teams during the Sprint Cup race in Richmond, NASCAR officials have stated that they will put rules in place to prevent such from happening again.
The investigative skills of the RacingWithRich.com staff have once again been put to use and a copy of next year’s requirements for making the Chase for the Sprint Cup as well as a few things that will get a driver/team excluded has been uncovered. Here are those new requirements:
1. Do not, under any circumstances, do anything that will cause NASCAR Chairman and CEO Brian France to step away from his usual routine for the purpose of watching, hearing about or making a decision on racing. To do so will result in immediate expulsion.
2. A driver will be included in the Chase if he/she drives for Hendrick Motorsports(or any team associated with said organization) and simply comes close to being one of the top-10 in points or earning a wildcard spot.
3. A driver will be excluded from the Chase if he/she drives for Michael Waltrip Racing and is on the borderline of entry requirements.
4. If NASCAR officials deem that a driver’s entry into the Chase will boost television ratings and/or track attendance, that driver will be included.
5. If a driver has one of NASCAR’s favored sponsors(i.e. the “Official _____ of NASCAR”) that driver will be included.
6. Any driver who praises the Gen6 car and/or condemns a fellow driver who has criticized said car gains entry into the Chase.
7. Any driver who uses the phrase “It was a good points day” at any time during the season will receive bonus points toward making the Chase.
8. Any team that builds a golden idol dedicated to the NASCAR’s TV contract or Mike Helton’s mustache and keeps said idol on top of their pit box during each race gains entry into the Chase, provided of course, that the golden idol becomes the sole property of NASCAR at the end of the “regular” season.
9. Any driver whose hot wife repeatedly shames NASCAR on Twitter will be included in the Chase.
10. And most importantly, NASCAR reserves the right to change these requirements at any time, including just hours before the Chase is set to begin, and include however many drivers they wish.
