    TWF2 2 heads are better than 1

    What you guys think of points for this race? You can crash out of the race and still have more points than somebody finishing race in top 5.

    What...??? No, AMA Superbike pays out points from 1st - 20th . Ranging from 30 points for first , down to 1 point for 20th . The only extra points paid are 1 point for pole position and 1 point paid for most laps lead .
    If a rider had pole and most laps lead he would have 2 points . If he DNF he could have more points than 20th place and would tie in points with the person that finished 19th . 5 th place pays 16 points .

    In the DSB class qualifying paid race points, but I still don't see how a 4th and 31st tallies up to 5th place points...unless I am not understanding something here????

    Yeah, the DSB points look pretty messed up.

    I see you might be referring to the DSB 200 race . Where they pay out points for for qualifying , using the same scale as the Superbike finishing order and also finishing position points as per AMA notice # 2014 -04
    I may have to stand corrected.

    The 4 riders with 19 points are correct :p

    6-13
    7-12
    10-9
    11-8

    They would have finished right ahead of #40 with 18 points...

    So they're awarding qualifying for the 200 full race points? Seriously?

    I can't see anything that states that points are awarded for qualifying.

    Don't like that myself. I get putting some weight into qualifying but that's too much.

    From the bulletin...


    The 2014 DAYTONA 200 event, scheduled for March 13 – 15, 2014, will provide two points-paying
    opportunities for GoPro Daytona SportBike competitors. At the conclusion of final qualifying, the rider on
    pole position will be awarded the prestigious Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, and the top 20 qualifiers will earn
    championship points for their final grid positions using the championship point scale defined in the AMA
    Pro Road Racing rulebook. The points earned in qualifying will be in addition to those awarded for their final
    race position in the 73rd running of the DAYTONA 200.

    Yeah, that is a little messed up. I know that Disalvo and Wetby raced their asses off, but for them to still be that high in the points after crashing out is a bit of an f'you to the guys that finished the race.
