Way to go Greg. also some teams do not have the $$$ backing as say Shatz or Larson so it is a big deal. Also a qualifier from last night came in on an open trailer. While i love to see Larson or Kasey or Tony run dont like that they take prize money from less funded teams. Maybe when they win they should dispurse their winnings to smaller teams who work theirs asses off just to get to knoxville all year. Im sure larson, kasey, stenhouse or Tony dont struggle to race here as other teams. Just a thought and i only watch these guys on nascar as they stay true to dirt racing. Otherwise would not even watch nascar. Just think they should help other teams. If they do most are not aware of it.

I think this is the most universally agreed upon definition of PA Posse.

Driver primarily races weekly events in PA: Posse!

Driver primarily does not race weekly events in PA: Not Posse!

 

Current Examples of Posse Drivers:

Danny Dietrich

Freddie Rahmer

Brian Monteith

Gregg Hodnett

Lucas Wolfe

 

Current Examples of Drivers who are not Posse:

Logan Schuchart

Brent Marks

Jacob Allen

Brock Zearfoss (at this point he hasn't really run the All Stars yet, but that seems to be their plan which will make him not posse)

Tyler Esh

 

If that isn't the most logical definition I'm not sure what is.

They do get points for every car they pass! 



Do you know the exact number? Also, is it calculated as a difference between start and finish?

They don't get true passing points. They get finishing points, with each spot dropping of by 3 I believe. True passing points you'd get your finishing point PLUS additional points for cars you passed. Guy starts on the pole and wins, then he gets 200 points. Another guy starts third, finished second, then he gets 197 for finishing second plus 2(assuming you get 2 per car passed) points for a total of 199. That would be passing points.

Sorry, I was messing with you.....with the point system as it is, essentially a driver is gaining three points for each pass made in heat races and two points for each pass in feature races. Regardless, the points are earned only by finishing positions in all races. In other words, if you start fourth in a heat and win, the max is still 100 points.

     Your logical definition goes out the window when one of the Shark cars wins it, but I'm OK with that.

     Since this discussion about Knoxville Nationals point system comes up every year, can someone please post a link to the official explanation of how points are awarded?

I know on the knoxville site it shows 200 points for quick and minus 2 each postion down.  Heat winners get 100 and minus 3 points each position.  Main 200 points to the winner minus 2 points each position

Hodnett ain't Posse.    He may be racing in Pennsylvania now, but that ain't where he learned to race.    Don't care what anyone says, that's a Memphis boy.    



Not to sound like an ass about it, but honestly, who the hell cares?

I've been going to PA races all my life, and I don't really care where someone's born.  I'm grateful for anybody who decides to run here.

Though admittedly, I hated Doug Wolfgang growing up, because it seemed like he never freaking lost.

Watched Logan run a ton of laps at Hunterstown, PA in multiple kart classes.

Agree, I always determine membership based on what series is run or where someone runs the majority of his shows!  Cheering for the Posse but the "Outlaws' above are cool too!  Plus the Hauds and Sweet!
