Who would be the champion of the 2016 NASCAR Truck Series Series Point Standings without the chase format? We’re taking a look at the 2016 classic NASCAR Truck point standings.
The NASCAR Chase format has been active for many years in the NASCAR Cup Series. However, 2016 is the debut season for the playoff format in the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.
