Of all the great posters on the Auto Boards; no one takes the time to do power rankings. I know Santos does them every week, but we don't have a regulur that does them. So, I have decided to give it a shot. So here it goes:
1. Carl Edwards
He would be second in the standings if it wasn't for the 100 point peniltiy.
2. Jeff Burton
The most consistant driver so far and the points leader. So far his worst finish is 13th at Daytona.
3. Dale Earnhardt Jr.
3rd in the standings and my favorite for next week at Talladega.
4. Kyle Busch
Another top 10 for Kyle Busch. 5th on the season. And oh yeah he is second in the standings.
5. Jimmie Johnson
He picked up his first win of many this season last week. He isn't doing as good as accpected, but what he is doing isn't that bad either.
6. Kevin Harvick
Santos has this guy at 8th. I think he defenitly more deserving then that. He is 5th in the standings.
7. Tony Stewart
5 top 10s so far, but the DNF at Las Vagas has hurt him.
8. Denny Hamlin
3 top 5s in the row. One of them being a victory. This guy is in store for a great season.
9. Greg Biffle
Sitting cofortably at 10th in the standings. With 5 top 10s on the season
10. Clint Bowyer
He had a slow start this season. He didn't get his first top 10 till Atlanta, but he hasn't missed the top 10 since. Plus a 2nd place finish in phoenix.
11. Ryan Newman
He won the 500, but only has one top 5 since. Plus the DNF last week didnt help. He is 11th only because he still is in the top 12 in the points and he has a victory this season which the next guy does not.
12. Kasey Kahne
Two years ago this guy was the guy to beat. Now he hasnt won a race since the callender said 2006. There is some good news though and no Carl didnt sell him any car insurence. Kasey has 4 top 10s this season.
13. Jeff Gordon
Even with his 3 DNFs he still sits 13th in the standings. Only 14 points behind Kahne for 12th.
14. Matt Kenseth
Matt hasn't been having the season he has hoped he would have and the 38th place finish this past weekend didnt help.
15. Martin Truex Jr.
A solid 8th place finish was his first top 10 since californa
16. Juan Pablo Montoya
This guy still has some learning to do. His best finish this season is 13th.
17. Kurt Busch
Although he did finish second at Daytona. Nothing has been going is way since. His best finish is 11th and he has a DNF at Las Vagas
He had a really tough start to the season (even getting out of the top 35 in owner points), but is finnally starting to recover. The 17th this past week gets him up to 26th in the standings.
19. Bobby Labonte
According to Santos he had to run part of the race on 7 cylinders and he still finished 12th. Nice Job Labonte.
20. Brian Vickers
If it wasn't for the two DNFs this season. Vickers would be in contention for the top 12.
Wow! Glad thats done. Only took me a little over an hour. So how did I do? Do you guys think I should continue with this? Comments:
