In NASCAR, like everything else in life, many people like to reminisce about the “Good Old Days” when things were better or simpler, just because. One of the things fans like to reminisce about is the old “Winston Cup” points system which was as simple as points systems get. Drivers raced through 36 races and whoever scored the most points based on how they finished in races at the end of the season wins the Championship.
However, @NWCS_Standings on Twitter keeps track of the standings as if NASCAR was still under that system to this day. Many points out how, under this format, seven drivers would have been within one race of the top spot with the top three separated by only 16 points.
