NASCAR POINT SYSTEM


FINISHING POSITIONS:

Top-five finishers are rewarded with a five-point separation between themselves and the next highest finisher. Positions six through ten are awarded a four-point separation. Three points separate each finishing position from eleventh through the end of the field, regardless of the number of starters (see chart).



BONUS POINTS:

Five bonus points are awarded to the driver who leads the most laps during a race, and five bonus points are also awarded to each driver who leads at least one lap, even if the only lap they lead was while the race was under caution.



RELIEF DRIVERS:

Points are awarded to the starting driver of each car, regardless of who is driving at the finish. The starting driver must take the green flag and complete at least one lap before turning the car over to a relief driver.



TIEBREAKERS:

The number of wins during the season are used to break a tie. Successive tie breakers are the number of second-place finishes, third-place finishes and so on until the tie is broken.
