What is this exactly?
NASCAR Cup Series point standings, old school. No stage points, no playoff points. Just a season long points race where only your race finish mattered.
NASCAR points without the chase/playoff generally results in an entirely different season champion. Such as 2016, Kevin Harvick would have been awarded the championship, not Jimmie Johnson.
