I'm sure this is a very simple question with an extremely complicated answer, but how in the heck does the WOO figure points out??? I only ask because I was just on their website site and can't for the life of me figure out how Pittman is the points leader... Pittman only has 8 wins to Donny's 20, 2 more top 5's then Donny, same # of top 10's, and 10 more QT's then Donny... You mean to tell me that Pittman's 10 additional QT's is worth more points then Donny's additional 12 wins??? Makes no sense to me, LOL...

To help answer the question, yes, the 10 additional QT's by Pittman do add up over the number of times Donny has won quick time. Not to mention, Donny did get off to a slower start in the beginning of the year, compared to Pittman who was on a crazy fast start. I believe there were multiple times where Donny did not finish well, and Daryn was always a top 5 those races.

Hope this helps.

I guess it does, thanks... My problem, and it goes with all forms of racing, is I can't believe that 20 wins doesn't beat 8, LOL... I remember years and years and years ago when Kasey Kahne had a ridiculous # of wins over everyone else in Nascar, and couldn't believe then that he didn't win that championship... I guess a small part of me does understand rewarding consistancy, just still don't understand how you can have that WINS over someone and not lead the points...

In every board I've ever posted on I've admitted how simple minded I was about stuff like this, this is just another example, LOL...

its 150 points for winning a WoO race, 2nd gets 146 and then 2 points on back.

Even if you made the wins worth 155, Pittman would still be ahead. I think one of the things that gets shortchanged is what a great year Pittman has had and sometimes what a disadvantage it is to time 1st or 2nd in the WoO format. Giving points for this is one way of making sure teams aren't sandbagging at all.

At Lincoln, Montieth in 2008 and Wagaman in 2012 won the championship with no wins.

Surprisingly, Shatz has finished outside the top ten 9 times and Pittman 12 times. So getting 5 points for QT adds up I guess. Here is a link with the stats from each race.

it just goes to show you need to be fast everytime you are out on the track and the 9 team will go for max points everynight and not sandbag for the inversion

That's funny. I guess all that sandbagging at Knoxville worked out well since Schatz had to come from 21st for the win. :laughing7: Make all the excuses you want but any point system that awards TT's more than feature wins is GREATLY flawed.

so your saying sandbagging in time trials is ok? is the object of racing is to be the fastest car on the track? I guess seeing how time trials arent important then why do they run them

I guarantee you nobody is sandbagging. TT's are run to set the heat race and feature lineups so it's very beneficial to time well. IMO they shouldn't count for any points.

Wrong Kinser and Swindell have both openly admitted to sandbagging to try and get a front row spot in a heat.
