Start the season at Homestead finish at Daytona with double points. The top 43 in points are the only cars eligible.
Each track gets only one race except for Charlotte which keeps the big cash race the week before the 600
30 races at 30 different tracks.
Add Road America in July and bring back Rockingham, put the Southern 500 back at Darlington where it belongs.
All the races will sell out and you will probably have to add seats at some of the tracks.
Two races at each track is just too much in today's economy.
Dump the chase and let them fight for double points at Daytona in November.

This will never happen but it would work for me. I would get to Charlotte, Rockingham, Darlington and maybe Martinsville

I would keep Daytona as the opener for the season. Then go to Rockingham the following week! And yes, the Southern 500 isn't a race if it's not at Darlington in my opinion! And for once remove the _&*M restrictors at T'DEGA!!!
