Reading through the scoring part of the rules.
2 points for each for second of operation up to the target time.
1 point penalty for each second over the target time.
So my interpretation is that if we ignore the timer:
Run time Time Score
20 s 40 points
50 s 100 points
60 s 120 points
70 s 120 points - 10 point penalty = 100 points
