While the 306 points that Jeremy Keans has accrued to date sounds pretty stout, keep in mind that the ACSSA counts your best 5 out of 6 races for your final points total, which tightens things significantly.
Here are the points for the top ten after the worst race to date is removed:
1. Jeremy Keans 265 points 2. Scott Underhill 223 points (-42) 3. Dave Garland 208 points (-57) 4. Mark Howes 185 points (-80) 5. Tommy Coughlan 167 points (-98) 5. Greg Nickerson 167 points (-98) 7. Kelly MacKay 163 points (-102) 7. Scott Sprague 163 points (-102) 9. Fred Thibeault 143 points (-122) 9. Mike Ingram 143 points (-122)
So; with 10 rounds of racing left in our season, less than 3 rounds separate the top three in points, and even 10th place is less than 7 rounds out of first. Beating Jeremy may be tough, but it's not impossible, plus the ACSSA pays back 5 places at the end of the season, and it looks like it'll be a real scrap as racers scramble for one of those spots.
It ain't over yet folks! Make your plans now to be at the season ending double header in Greenfield on Sept. 22nd-23rd!

Someone asked me why I was subtracting the worst points score after only 4 races when we have 2 more to go, so I thought I'd explain it a bit further. Deducting it now gives you a better idea of the net points spread between each position, but keep in mind that it's just a snapshot in time. If someone has a bad race in the final two they will drop that one instead, which will affect the points spread that much more. For instance, it Jeremy lost in the 1st round at one of the final two races that would be only 21 points and he would drop that race and keep the 41 point race, actually increasing his total points score. Mark or Dave already have a 0 points event however, so they can't benefit by claiming a different race.
It may seem like a weird way to look at it, but the NHRA World Championship points (the Big Show! LOL) are typically tracked throughout the year the same way, with racers using that data to plan which races they need to attend to have the best chance to claim the championship.
