    Hello, everyone. I run a mock season like some of you do, and it starts off with the year 2000.

    For those who don't know, the early 2000's was NASCAR's most competitive seasons, which saw 12-18 winners/year and saw many non-plate underdog victories such as Benson, Craven, R. Gordon, Waltrip, Park, and Sadler, as well as numerous low-class teams competing for top 10's and 15's.

    The ratings system I use is a slightly modified version of labontefanboy's Mock Season ratings (If wanted, I'll go into details). But I have an issue: The underdog teams have rarely competed for wins outside of plate races. The only winners are of giants Hendrick, Gibbs, Penske, Childress, Yates, and Roush (with Bill Davis and Ganassi scoring the odd win). How can I get a more competitive roster while not having it totally random and somewhat realistic?

    I think I should provide more context:

    In 2000, I had the 5 teams with the highest PPR be Tier 1, the next 2 would be 6 teams each. The season had 14 different winners and had 14 non-Tier 1 teams achieve a top 5 (excluding plate tracks).

    In 2001, I had the 3 tiers have 7 teams each. The season had 17 different winners and had 6 non-Tier 1 teams achieve a top 5 (once again, not including plate tracks).

    In 2002, I had divided the tiers up by PPR:

    For Cars: T1 = 100+, T2 = 80+, T3 = 60+, T4 = <59
    For Drivers: T1 = 120+, T2 = 100+, T3 = 80+, T4 = <79

    HOW CAN I CHANGE THIS TO MAKE THE RACING MORE COMPETITIVE?????
