Charlotte, N.C. – The short NASCAR off season ended Tuesday as the annual pilgrimage of the media who cover the sport ended at the NASCAR Hall of Fame in Charlotte North Carolina.  The first session of the three day event brought perhaps the biggest new of the week as NASCAR announced that its Chase playoff format will be extended to the Xfinity and Truck series.

The format, featured in the top touring Sprint Cup series since 2004 and tweaked in 2014, features separate rounds of eligible drivers who are eliminated after three race rounds leaving four drivers racing for the respective series title in the final race of the season with the highest finisher among the four crowned as champion.
