‘NASCAR Race Hub’ discusses mindset for winning drivers in new format

With the new changes to NASCAR’s race format, there is more incentive for drivers to continue racing hard after capturing a win.

In the old format, once you won a race, you could essentially start testing equipment to prepare for the playoffs.

That’s no longer the case in three-stage race format.

As Andy Petree said during the discussion, “If you do that this season, you’re going to look around come playoff time and wonder ‘where’d everybody go?’.”

There’s only one race down so far in this season but we should start to get a better picture of how the new points system will play out in the coming weeks.
