The Right Ending at the Right Time
It has been suggested, over the years, that Daytona should host the season finale. I have always been against that idea. Too much can happen there that is totally out of the drivers’ control. I don’t think it would be a fair way to determine the sport’s champion.
But, finishing the regular season there? I’ve become a huge fan.
Yes, the same argument against an ending still applies’ there is a lot of uncertainty. And. Lot that happens that’s out of the drivers’ control. That’s why it’s so enthralling.
It’s a last chance race, and just about everybody has a shot to win and grab a playoff spot. If you’re the guy on the playoff bubble; it’s nerve-wracking as all get-out. But, you’ve had 25 races to put yourself in a better position.
How many times, on Saturday night, did you look at the front of the pack and see a guy leading (or right there), whose only way into the playoffs was to win?
I love the way this part of the schedule is laid out. And, don’t even consider moving Daytona back 10 weeks.
