"Old vs. New Points - 1972 WINSTON WEST Rework"
Posted by Riverside on December 18, 2012

The 1972 Winston West series was won by RAY ELDER, despite HERSHEL McGRIFF winning three more races and having generally much better results. This is because of the convoluted points system NASCAR employed in the 60s and 70s where you would points from where you finish and from the amount of laps you completed. Using a much simpler system (1975 rules), we see how the final standings drastically change, with a different champion.
