Wasn’t Winning Supposed To Matter More?

Really, winning doesn't matter all that much. If it did, Joey Logano would be leading the way; Jimmie Johnson and Matt Kenseth would be in the mix, and so would Kyle Busch. Instead, two of the top four drivers in the final four have one lone victory on the year, and then you have Kevin Harvick- who has mixed wins and consistency, and Kyle Busch- whose four victories are especially impressive, because they came with 11 fewer opportunities.
