Can someone please explain the 2001 points system?

Case in Point: Marcos Ambrose ended up with 146 points in round 5, but only finished race 2.

Points were awarded to the top 32 cars, regardless of whether or not they finished the race. Most rounds had a maximum of 288 points available including the shootout. There were 378 available at Canberra and the QLD 500, while Adelaide and Bathurst both offered a maximum of 558.

Points for the shootout meant that the driver with the best set of race results was not guaranteed the round win. At Sandown, Lowndes had a 2nd, a 3rd and a 1st (242 pts), while Kelly had two 3rds and a 1st (234 pts). However, Kelly got the round win from gaining 14 points in the shootout, while Lowndes qualified 14th and received no points.

Hard to imagine you get points when you don't finish the race!
Odd to think they did that to keep it all tight, but the margins between points at the bigger races were massive.

It was the same in 2003 as well.

It is also interesting that the shootout points were not extended for the Top Fifteen Shootouts.
