Wonder what the points would look like if NASCAR hadn't "simplified" the points system? Well, here you go. Remember, people like Trevor Bayne would have still accumulated points for their races. The order that these drivers are in is what they would be if NASCAR hadn't changed the points system followed by total points with the change in standing in parenthesis after the point total.

The difference is very minimal, no matter how much NASCAR advertises that this new points system is more exciting. There are a few changes, but for the most part, everyone is ranked one spot lower because Bayne is included. If he wasn't there would barely be any differences. So, is this new points system all it's hyped up to be? I'll continue to record the points using last year's format through the 2011 season to find out.

That was the most fun race of the year so far in my opinion. There were lead changes and passes and lots of hard racing back in the pack and a perfect slide job (Chase) and in the end, it was a gutty strategy call that won the race. Ryan Newman…Continue
