Head2Head: Should there be a system separating the Chasers?

Postseason sports are as American as apple pie and a right of passage for every fans' season just as sure as leaves drop in the fall. But NASCAR's "playoffs" are an odd little bird. The change toward an affected postseason system isn't as seamless and obvious with the Sprint Cup Series as say in football or baseball. That said, should there be a way to separate the drivers in the Chase for the Sprint Cup from the drivers just going around in circles during the sport's postseason with no chance of a championship, so as not to effect those in the hunt week-to-week? Should there be a points system separating Chasers? Mark Aumann and Nick Margiasso are on opposite sides of the spectrum. Read their arguments and weigh in with your comments below.
