SBI Key West Worlds Update: Checking The Points

During the Wednesday and Friday races Super Boat International’s Offshore World Championships in Key West, Fla., teams earn points for their finishing order. Most notably, a first-place is worth 250 points, a second-place finish is worth 225 points and a third-place result is worth 202.5 points. In Sunday’s longer grand finale in which teams run twice as many laps (14 to 18—the number varies from class to class) the points awarded for podium finishes double.
