yeah, i don't like kurt busch, but his team fought tooth and nail throughout the chase and came out on top. when that wheel fell off, i said to my wife "well, he's out". the 8 team needs to move some focus off of their plate-race cars to the cars that jr drives on these flat, fast tracks (ks, miami, fontana, etc), as these speedways tend to be the achilles' heel for dale. and about the points system. i thought the new system was supposed to focus on winning rather than consistency. 97 had three wins, 48 had eight. jimmie placed well, in addition to winning a bunch. i think the only way to fully reward the winners would be to give the winner 200 pts and the second place guy 180.

[i thought the new system was supposed to focus on winning rather than consistency]

As long as the non-winning driver can still leave the race with more points than the winner, NASCAR's new system doesn't focus on winning either.

I really don't understand their reluctance to award the race winners winner's points--even before this year. +5 bonus for leading a lap, +5 for leading the most laps, where's the bonus for winning? They need to make that +10 so that regardless, the winner always leaves with more points--or at least tie?

Can't they add or what?
