A Retraction to my post ‘When did winning become so important….and what makes a Champion?’

As the title states, this is a retraction to my earlier post ‘When did winning become so important….and what makes a Champion?’.

In the post I stated how the Chase for the Sprint Cup was created in part because the 2003 NASCAR Sprint Cup champion had won the championship without winning a race. That turns out to be false. The 2003 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion, Roush Racing’s Matt Kenseth, had won one race that year.

Apparently, contrary to what I had been lead to believe, there has never been a NASCAR Sprint Cup champion (Either in the Grand National Division Era, Winston Cup Era, or Nextel Cup Era) that has won the championship but never won a race.
