10. Now that the No. 88 team has been moved to share a shop with the No. 48, how often will Dale Jr. be caught staring dreamily at the trophy case?

9. What did Steve Letarte do to piss Rick Hendrick off so bad that he named him Junior’s crew chief?

8. Did Richard Petty really hire Tonya Harding to whack Kasey Kahne in the knees?

Shocked that someone wasn’t a fan of his Chase, Brian France quickly pondered the nearest exit… and retired to his closest home to curl up in a ball and cry.

7. Has Brian France finally tipped his hand as to how stupid and out of touch he is by appearing incredulous when told by a reporter that some fans don’t like the Chase?

6. Think Denny and Mike will talk their smack again next year?

5. Did you know that, had Brian’s brilliant Chase system been in effect in 1992, Kyle Petty would be a Cup champion?

4. If NASCAR implemented a “dollar per vote” charge on voting for the Most Popular Driver, would Dale Jr. still win? And if he didn’t win, would they blame him for lost revenue?

3. Can you imagine how much money NASCAR could make if they would have Brian France on the chair of a dunk tank at every race or at the new Hall of Fame?

2. Wouldn’t it be cool if Brian France could magically reset my credit score for the last third of my life like he does the points?!

1. When Kurt Busch sits on the throne in the morning, is he thinking that dropping a deuce is really just a metaphor for dropping the deuce?
