NASCAR considered Chase changes

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - A 16-driver championship field that would be whittled down to create a winner-take-all season finale is among radical changes reportedly being considered by NASCAR.

NASCAR chairman Brian France has repeatedly said he wants to place a greater emphasis on winning, and he's never ruled out tinkering with the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format in an effort to create the ''Game 7 moments'' he covets.

The Charlotte Observer first reported Friday night the possible changes NASCAR is considering.

The Observer cited anonymous sources in outlining a 16-driver Chase field that would kick out the four lowest ranked drivers after three races. The points would be reset, three more drivers would be kicked out after three more races and the finale would be a winner-take-all for the four remaining drivers.
