Andrew "Kidd" Howard took the points lead with back to back wins at Redding, CA this weekend. He just edged out
Ron Hamby by 10 points!
Andrew gives up 40 points to the "Over 5" Rule. They were going to try and run the 22 May Redding Rain Out race as well for a total of 3 races, but time just wouldn't allow it.
If they had run that 3rd race and
Andrew had won another 3 rounds he actually wouldn't have added any more points because his top 6 races have all been 3 rounders.
Check out his 0.6333 PI.
Killer Bees need to be able to increase their car counts by just a couple in order to get some 4 round races.
Unfortunately for
Andrew that leaves the door open for the Top 3
East Coasters to tie it back up with just their attendance points at the remaining 2 races at Hagerstown (Mason Dixon), MD next weekend.
In a
very unlikely scenario, the top 3
East Coasters could all be put out in the first round... That could give us a
4 WAY TIE for the 2016 Championship!
How's that for a photo finish? If that scenario were to occur,
Andrew Howard would be crowned the 2016 Slant 6 Champion based on his 0.6333 Performance Index winning 19 of 30 rounds.
Ron Hamby, Ryan Covalt and Rodney Hargis are all in a 3 way tie for 2nd place going into the final big race of the 2016 season!
Ryan Covalt reset the D/Nitrous record at Wilkesboro, NC in August, adding 20 points to edge out
Rodney Hargis with his 0.4375 PI to
Rodney's 0.3947.
Ron Hamby's PI is 0.4615, giving us the closest season finale I think we've ever seen!
You can't count out
Greg Ondayko who is just 30 points behind at 160 with his superior 0.5600 PI.
He has had a winning season.
That final "Wild Card" may come into play next weekend if
Ron, Rodney or Greg pull out the stops for a record...
Hey
Andrew Howard!! Don't forget to send in your timeslips for your secret record at Redding this weekend...
EDIT: I added 5 points to the seven racers at Redding, CA in May. I had mistakenly only given them 5 attendance points for the rained out race, but they had all stayed over hoping to race on Sunday.
Enough commentary. Here are the points:

I changed the
Mokan Racers color to reflect their
East Coaster status. The East/West dividing line was changed to something other than the Mississippi River beginning this year... Not sure where it is now...
As always, if you see any mistakes please let me know.
