The rule states that 50 points are awarded to the top scorer then down in 2 point increments to 5th place then 1 point increments the rest of the way down
1st - 50
2nd - 48
3rd - 46
4th - 44
5th - 42
So 6th place should get 41 points, doesn't happen, never has, gets 40 points.
Robbed I tell ya!
Suppose I'll have to stay in the top 5, then it don't make a **** of difference.
