Tucson, AZ, WPH Press, 7/27/18
 In an effort to reward the most in-form players during the upcoming R48, WR48, and SR48 tour seasons, the WPH has cut all of the R48, WR48, and SR48 pro player ranking points in half in advance of the 2018/19 Race 4 Eight season. The upcoming season’s ranking points will be doubled from the current ranking points breakdown, meaning more volatility and excitement in the Race 4 Eight Power Rankings.

“After much discussion with our rules committee, we have decided to create more opportunities for the hottest players to rise in the rankings,” stated WPH Executive Director Dave Vincent. “In past seasons, we’ve seen players remain at the top or close to the top of the rankings midway through the season without playing an event because of strong results in the previous season. We want the rankings to reflect more of what is happening now than what happened 6-12 months ago.”
