The best racers in the world vie for Kobalt's championship belt every spring, and this year, it’s especially important. Debuting first at the Subway Fresh Fit 500, drivers will have to contend with the newest Chase rules overhaul: each race winner (of the 26-race regular season) will automatically get a bid into Chase field, with 16 drivers qualifying for postseason (including 15 race winners and one points leader). The 10-race Chase features a new playoff format: four rounds (three three-race segments and one season finale) where four drivers will be eliminated after each round. Finally, at Homestead-Miami, the winning driver out of the four remaining in the Chase for the Sprint Cup will win the series championship.
