Let me start by saying I have eliminated all drivers who run a full Sprint Cup schedule from my Nationwide races and points system to form the REAL Nationwide Results.

Friday night in Phenoix, Arizona, saw points leader Jason Leffler bring the No. 38 Great Clips Chevy to the winner's cirlcle.

Rounding out the top five are:

2. Brad Keslowski

3. Brenden Gaughan

4. Justin Alligaeir

5. Mike Bliss


I determined the points system each week using the current Nationwide system, removing all Cup guys, and moving the Nationwide drivers up in to those spots.

Also, I removed any bonus points from the drivers, even if they did lead a lap. There's just no way to tell who or how many laps they would have lead without the Cup guys being there.
