IMHO: Points. 1st 2nd 3rd, all within a couple points.
If you're in 2nd or 3rd... you don't want to risk a fall,
not that many points to gain by going all out on a pass.
Maybe if the points spread on the top was increased so the top
3 places would be inclined to race for first or second... dunno tho.
I think VP was waiting for JS to lawn dart.
Millsaps also wanted VP and JS to dart.
Result was a parade.
