pretty sure gordon was awarded 42 points for his 2nd place finish.
points leader was awarded 37 points for his 7th place finish. the point difference made up on the leader is 5 regardless of how many other chase drivers gordon was able to pass up in the points standings.
points are awarded per race. points standings are cumulative.
