Hi guys, I actually did this aggges ago and have been updating it ever since.

I'm gonna post them on here for reference for y'all (some American speak for you :))

I know these things have absolutely 0 official affect on the series itself, but I feel in races you have reliability, crashes, fuel strategies, tyre strategies, bad luck, good luck. That skews the end of season championship table in a way that the fastest (best in some ways) driver doesn't win the series/championship. I know I know this is racing and I understand that, but I do these tables to show myself and others if any one else is actually interested, what the tables would look like if the fastest guys "won" each event.

Additionally I understand sometimes qually is wet or in modern times you get grid penalties, but I feel it shows in the best available way, what the "true" series tables should be, I have done the same for F1, WTCC and BTCC.

Please if anyone does actually care for these let me know, I don't do this for other people but it's always a nice feeling to know somebody appreciates what you've done, no matter how trivial.

Anyways the IRL points systems and how the points were given and calculated has always ***** changed, so the older seasons took some serious research LOL.

Here's 1996 for ya ;D

Hey mate,
Thats pretty interesting actually. I went back and watched some of the old IRL races a little while ago and wondered what the standings wouldve looked like if tony stewart in particular didnt keep breaking down right before the chequered flag. Interesting with Guerrero up there too.
Good work!
