CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR's simplified new points system is not so simple after all.
After the first full weekend of racing, Carl Edwards left Daytona International Speedway as the Sprint Cup Series points leader. Landon Cassill tops the Nationwide Series standings and Clay Rogers is first in the Trucks Series.
Not one of them won a race last weekend.
So what gives?
The new scoring system says drivers can race for only one championship, and that made for some confusion after Daytona.
