No more exams! Yes!



1. Kyle Busch (Last Week: 1st)
Kyle Busch 5 wins says it all. Also his 10 top 5s is 3 more then anyone else.
2. Carl Edwards (Last Week: 3rd)
Carl Edwards He hasn't finished out of the top 10 since talladega ( 7 top 10s in the row)
3. Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Last Week: 2nd)
Dale Earnhardt Jr. Just missed the top 10 this week. He is now only 49 points (unofficially) behind Burton.
4.  Jeff Burton (Last Week: 4th)
 Jeff Burton Back to back non-top 10s. This guy is starting to slow down.
5.  Jeff Gordon (Last Week: 8th)
Jeff Gordon This guy has come a long way since his disasterous first half of the season. He is now 6th in the standings, 41 points behind his teammate in the 48.

13.  Brian Vickers (Last Week: 15th)
Brian Vickers Up another spot to 15th in the standings.
14. David Ragan (Last Week: 13th)
David Ragan I couldn't decide who I wanted to place here. Harvick hasnt' been running well. Newman did get a top 10 this week but the week before he didnt do to good, so I went with Ragan. He has been runing fairly decent and is only 47 points out of 12th.
15. Ryan Newman (Last Week: 18th)
Ryan Newman First top 10 since richmond.
16. Juan Pablo Montoya (Last Week: Just Missed)
Juan Pablo Montoya 2nd top 10 of the season moves him up to 19th in the standings.
17.  Kevin Harvick  (Last Week: 11th)
Kevin Harvick Ok. Most of you will get on me for putting Harvick this low. Well, he hasnt had a top 10 since Richmond and a top 5 since Bristol. He only has two top 5s and five top 10s anyway, so not an overly great season, so far. Plus he is falling in the standings. He has droped down to 13th.
18.  Travis Kvapil (Last Week: 17th)
Travis Kvapil He has definitly slowed down, but still sits in 18th.
19.Martin Truex Jr. (Last Week: 16th)
Martin Truex Jr.
20. David Gilliland (Last Week: Just Missed)
David Gilliland Nice job David. Almost shocked the NASCAR world if he would have won.

Just Missed:
1. Jamie McMurray 
2. Mark Martin 
3. Kurt Busch 
4. Bobby Labonte

Power Rankings: After Infineon

1.) I agree with you with Harvick, just watch out this week, if he finishes good, which he could here, might want to put him back up there

2.) Montoya is too high

3.) Truex is too low, switch Montoya and Truex... I mean Montoya always does good at road courses, but he is still horrible overall this season.

Power Rankings: After Infineon

edwardsfan, I ran into the same situtation this morning.  I was off for about 30 minutes.  I even asked someone to check to see If I had been kicked off by some chance.

(Unfinished) Power Rankings: After Infineon

Actually, I didn't have that problem today, but I have been having that problem a lot recently, this week it happened to me once, and about 2 times last week or more, maybe 5 total, make sure that if you put a lot of work into something, copy it, until they fix the problem, so its not just you.

(Unfinished) Power Rankings: After Infineon

Ether CBS or my computer was very glitchy this morning. Whenever I switched pages it had me log in again, so I finished with the top 12 and hit submit, then it asked me to log in again and all the work I did was lost. So I am now behind schedule. What I want to know is ; did anyone else have that problem today?

Finally Jeff Gordon is ahead of Johnson!!!!!

Also make sure Kasey is 6th or 7th, he was really good in the last race, he just had trouble, and if not, he could have had a top 10 for the first time there, more likely a top 20 for the first time
