Top 12

Aside from the cards, there's still a lot of things about NASCAR I don't understand.  Several years back they instituted the "Race for Chase" or "Chase the Cup" or something that basically made the final quarter of the season semi pointless to the average fan.  Drivers got points for doing well during the season and then only the top 12 drivers competed for the Winston Cup.  No, the Nextel Cup.  No, the Sprint Cup.  Whatever.  But everyone raced.  These cards honor the fact that Jeff Burton made it into the top 12 in 2008 and 2009.  Or maybe in 2007 and 2008.  The cards came out in 2008 and 2009.  Dang confusing NASCAR.

Look, just a few more days of this and we'll be back to baseball.
