The overhauling of the system is one of a handful of changes NASCAR is considering implementing before the season begins next month. Series officials have been detailing their ideas in individual meetings with teams, a person who attended one of the briefings told The AP on Monday.

The person spoke to The AP on condition of anonymity because NASCAR has not finalized its upcoming changes.

The sanctioning body wants to go to a scoring system that would award 43 points to the race winner, and one point less for each ensuing position down to one point for the 43rd-place finisher.

NASCAR is also shying away from wholesale changes to its Chase for the Sprint Cup championship format.

Nascar talks about putting emphasis on wining with chase seeding and what not but then go and make the difference between first and second one point. I wouldn't be totally against a points shake up but this doesn't seem like a good idea.

dnf's would be brutal with this scoring because a great finish wouldnt gain back as many points.
