I disagree. ANY time a driver gives you stellar points as Junior and Ky Busch have so far, they werent a waste at all. If you average a 5th place finish all 9 times you use them, it doesnt matter where in the season you received said points. Both are pretty strong at M'ville,and if you have them available to start, they're a good shot for lots of points. I'd rather be on (or very near) the top of my league and fight off people to close the year, than being deeper down in standings trying to make a big run at the end. THINGS CHANGE DRAMATICALLY FOR MOST DRIVERS IN THE CHASE!
