Playing with the ‘B’ mod, sport mod numbers

QR OLD LOGOimagesShortly after the end of the 2012 season, Joe Bliven suggested I combine the old “B” modified statistics with those of the sport mods since they are — for all intents and purposes — the same type of car. I like the way Joe thinks (usually, anyway).

First of all, let’s examine how the career track points looked for the 1999-2005 period for the “B” mods, then we’ll add in the 2011-12 sport mods. We use 1999 as the starting point because that is the first season statistics started being kept at the track.

Down the road, we’ll look at victories, but today we’ll start with the track points to get an idea of consistency and overall dominance.

Rob Carter, 3,676
Jim Leffew, 3,327
Wes Mayfield, 3,136
Terry Houston, 2,961
Joe Bliven, 2,952
Kelly Bartz, 2,892
Joe Hooper, 2,807

Only Tony Dunker and Bliven from the old “B” mod days have been involved with the new-age sport mods, but over the course of years to come we’ll see some of sport mod pioneers work their way into this new combined list.
