"What if...The 1999 points were converted to the new system"

So this is a new series I thought I would start here on the website. It's called "What if?" I thought I would try converting each NASCAR season into today's points and see who/if the same driver would end up champion. Some do - however, some don't and a lot of drastic things do happen.

The first season I decided to do was 1999. Dale Jarrett, the real 1999 Champion, ends up finishing 2nd to Bobby Labonte. Labonte sealed the deal with a huge win at the last race of the year. John Andretti qualifies for the chase due to his win, and ends up gaining 6 spots in the end. Here is the whole standings.
