The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season has come to an end – and Jimmie Johnson has claimed his sixth Championship in the series. Fans have had multiple opinions on the setup of the 10-race Chase format to declare the Champion since its inclusion in NASCAR in 2004. As some years, going back by the classic point standings a driver different than the Chase winner would of taken home the trophy.

Below are the official point standings without the Chase.
Las Vegas has Johnson pegged as a 3-1 odd to win the Cup in the 2014 season.
