2019 Championship Standings Through 3/13/2019

The standings are beginning to take shape ... once we head to the midwest in mid-April, we should have an idea who the likely top five contenders are.

2019 Championship Standings Through 2/2/2019

We're three races in!!
I made a slight change to the points structure ... awarding B-Main drivers 35 points, C-Main drivers 30 points, and D-Main drivers 25 points. Then the Least Squares Means process tabulates points for races drivers didn't participate in, yielding our champion.
Here's the way the Championship looks.

New Structure For 2019

Having had a full year to test out the methodology, I will be using a new structure for 2019.
Only World of Outlaws, All Stars, and Knoxville Nationals races will be included in determining the champion.
Only drivers participating in at least seven (7) races will be included.
Points will be awarded differently. 100  95  92  90  88  86  84  82  80  78  76  74  72  70  68  66  64  62  60  58  56  54  52  50  48  46  44  42  40  38B-Main = 25 points. C-Main = 15 points. D-Main = 10 points. E-Main =   5 points.
The "Least Squares Mean" process will be used again in 2019. This means that I am combining finishes across sanctioning bodies. If a driver averages 7th in the World of Outlaws and 2nd in All Stars races but races mostly in All Stars races, the driver will be evaluated comparable to a 7th place World of Outlaws driver instead of a 2nd place All Stars driver.
Using this criteria, here are the "Fab 40" for 2018.
