    In a drastic change to what the Sprint Cup Series has used for most of its history, cars will no longer qualify for the race based on a two-lap, solo run around the track.

    Beginning the week after the Daytona 500, NASCAR will use knockout qualifying -- popularized in Formula One and IndyCar -- to set the field.

    NASCAR changes qualifying format, adds eliminations

    Could be interesting and make for better TV.

    I really dislike the chase, but I like this idea :)
