Twitter Q&A’s between drivers and fans often reveal some interesting quirks or details about a driver that we didn’t previously know. Following Sunday’s race at Sonoma, Brad Keselowski was simply asked where he would want the Chase finale to be held.
How NASCAR hasn’t thought of this yet boggles my mind.
Some place different every year would be sweet. The host city of the track should have to bid on it like super bowl https://t.co/scSgZfHT3G

Keselowski answered by noting that he’d not only want to see the finale held at a different location each year, but NASCAR should also hold bids on the event. It’s a perfect way to add some diversity to the final race while also eliminating a cookie-cutter track to close out the season.
While we likely wouldn’t see a road course like Sonoma or Watkins Glen to close out the year, a superspeedway or short track would create some fireworks. As a former NASCAR champion in 2012, Keselowski might benefit from a move to another track. Kentucky or Chicagoland, courses where he nearly averages a top-10 finish with two wins apiece, might be perfect for the Blue Deuce.
Fingers crossed that this actually becomes a thing. While the Chase format already builds plenty of suspense for NASCAR fans, adding more excitement for the final race can only boost ratings for the sport.
