Scoring could use a relook

Look, I don't have a dog in this hunt. Dungey, great guy, great champion and 1st ballot hall of famer. Tomac, his best days are ahead of him and the kid has mad speed. I'm just a little troubled when a guy wins 9 races (coulda been 10 with tonight) and the champion only wins three. Ya I get the consistency argument that all the Dungey nut swingers will promote, but does that make you the best in a sport that's driven by speed? I'm not so sure it does. I'm just saying that there should be a bigger reward for spilling your guts to actually win the race. Maybe I'm wrong and the right guy won, but something tells me Tomac is faster, better and more skilled rider. But......like I said at the start of this thread, I don't have a dog in this hunt.

If anything I think the points should be tighter
It's usually a total runaway

Fastest rider doesnt always win the championship

Best "racer" does.

It's that simple.

One of the closest seasons we've had in years....and people are upset?

Not even close to upset. Terrific battle and great ending, but something's nagging at me. Poster above has a point about runaways, but it just seems like a guy that wins 9 races is pretty consistent too. I guess guys like Bradshaw know how Tomac feels right about now.

Hunterp27 is right. The fastest guy is not winning the championship. Yes, it happens in all sports. Hey, look at the falcons, they blew a 28-3 lead. Shit happens. Dungeys cashing that check at the end of the day but he's not the fastest. He has not been the fastest in most of the championships he's won but that's racing. Ya gotta be in it to win it

I think supercross should be like NBA basketball. First racer to win four games, I mean races, takes home the title.

this is a terrible comparison but here goes. Dungey has been throwing on average, 85 cents into this piggy bank every week for the the entire season. Tomac threw in a full 1.00 bill into his own piggy bank 9 times this year and some change here and there.

Thats why winning 9 races doesnt mean "everything". At the end of the season who has more money in their bank?

Make first more rewarding.... then the last 5 titles would have been clinched even sooner....

Hey, why don't they do what AX did with their series - then the racer with the most wins on the season will surely win the championship.....oh wait, didn't happen there either.

You want to reward wins more? I hope you enjoy watching less riders making it through the season. If they made the difference between first and second 5 points I doubt we'd ever see a season still competitive with more than 2 races left.

I say the rider with fewest mistakes/crashes is champion...

Don’t piss off the old people - the older they get the less “life in prison” is a deterrent for them!

Looking forward to the Outdoor Nationals to see some real Motocross like in the 70's except with a lot of Supercross obstacles that are not needed at all. Motocross is supposed to be run on a natural terrain track but MX Sports has lost their way over the years. But wfo4ever is "Old School" and that will never change.

Ok so a guy wins the first 9 races... They cancel the next 8 races or what????! He just sit out and all the other guys keep racing ? It's a championship not a let's see who wins the more races, even the 250s some championships could be decided in the first four races ? That's stupid and your argument that it's a sport driven by speed is wrong if you like that go and watch drag racing that's all speed this is a beautiful and unique motorsport based on speed, intelligence, consistency, brains, mechanical failures, hard work, and so on

Rather be a racer for a time than a spectator for a lifetime..

If you don't crash once in a while, you're not going fast enough.
