quit blaming the points system, its all the same, just less numbers.


How big of a deficit is 35 points? Under the old points system, used in every Chase prior to this one, it roughly translates to a 120-point margin, which has some relevance. In 2006, Year 1 of Johnson’s reign, he left Charlotte seventh in the standings, trailing by 146 points with five races to go. He finished the season going first, second, second, second, ninth to win the title by a comfortable margin of 56 points over Kenseth.

Not only is a comeback doable, but Johnson has battled back from a larger margin.
