Congrats sportsfreak!

Congrats to Jesse and, again, thanks to Chris; that so many streak polls fizzle and disappear after a few weeks suggests that these are much harder to maintain than one might suppose, and you have been perfectly on top of this for at least the last three seasons--awesome job.

Having, as ever, too much time on my hands, I calculated the points under the old format, principally so that we might see whether AndiLee would have surmounted the thirteenth spot, given her disinclination to remain there; thanks to ILoveSmoke's missing half of the Chase races, she would have (I would offer my usual disclaimer here, to the effect that that I follow the sport only in order that I should be a well-rounded sports fan and toward fantasy success, having already devoted more words to a NASCAR-related issue than I should have liked, but I have encountered enough stereotype-busting NASCAR followers on the 'Q that I no longer attach any stigma to NASCAR fandom), but only one other significant change would have occurred (GFinn drops from second to tenth despite having scored--and I hope I've this right--more points during the Chase than anyone else [1598, just 24 fewer that Jimmie Johnson in the real thing]; he was well back before the points reset [521 points adrift of first and 520 behind the ultimate winner], although it must be noted that part of that deficit followed from his missing a race, the Chevy Rock & Roll 400, one that, having already locked up a Chase spot, he could skip).  The points, then, at least AFAICT (top fifteen only, because no one else passes the last Chaser):

1) sportsfreak008 - 5173
2) Jahiegel - 5151
3) illini81887 - 5013
4) cubfanbudman - 5006
5) CMB - 4977
6) Scott - 4884
7) hskrdave - 4827
8) kanwistaye - 4779
9) bwfc2good4u - 4776
10) GFinn - 4668
11) wecubsfans68 - 4391
12) AndiLee0388 - 4238
13) therick - 4189
14) qtowndogg - 3764
15) ILoveSmoke - 3692

I can't complain with an 8th place finish plus three wins which all came in the Chase courtesy of Jimmie Johnson.  Congrats Jesse on besting all of us.
