NASCAR Cup playoffs: Shouldn’t the best of the best be the winner?

Editor’s note: Race scores, race notes, and updated driver standings follow this story.

This year was supposed to be the year of the next generation car and it was a really popular year.

We’ve had a season of parity unlike any we’ve likely seen in at least two decades, if not longer. We’ve seen drivers win races that they probably haven’t in most other years.

On the flip side, we’ve seen drivers fail to win even once when they had to win multiple times, guys like former Cup champions Martin Truex Jr. and Brad Keselowski, as well as Ryan Blaney, the only one of the three to make the playoffs.
