Today, NASCAR announced the format for the 2016 All-Star Race.
I remember a time when the last segment gimmick was a draw to invert the running order. Now they’re going to draw to see how many drivers will be forced to put for tires BEFORE the final segment starts?
Uh, everybody will pit. And I’ll be shocked if the guys who are able to take two tires — if anyone elects to at all — don’t get gobbled up by the frontrunners on fresh rubber.
Maybe they’re hoping someone will be desperate and cause a big crash.
