Race Log Web automatically computes the score for each penalty based on your settings in the Scoring Methods pages for your scoring method. -->> Example - if 'DNS' has setting of '1' on Method page, then penatly points will be 1 more than the number of Entrants in the fleet, or 1 more than the number of Starters in a racer. The "Entrants" or "Starters" designation can be set in the Scoring Methods pages.
