Last week there was some chat on how I came up with the rankings. I said that I ranked them on their recent performence, but that is kind of viag. So starting this week I will try to rank them on perfomence from the last 5 or so races.
1. Kyle Busch (Last Week: 1st)
This guys number one no matter how I rank them.
2. Carl Edwards (Last Week: 3rd)
Nice 2nd place finish to bad he couldnt get the win. He has only missed the top 10 twice since Bristol.
3. Dale Earnhardt Jr. (Last Week: 5th)
I dont know what I was thinking say that Jr was slowing down. Jr has 3 top 10s in the last 5 races and a win. Plus now he is #2 in the points standings.
4...Matt Kenseth (Last Week: 11th)
He's up to 9th in the standings and in the last 5 races he has two top 5s and four top 10s
5. Jimmie Johnson (Last Week: 4th)
Besides this weeks 23rd the last few races has been pretty good for him.
6. Jeff Burton (Last Week: 2nd)
Jeff only has one top 10 in the last 5 races, but four top 15s.
7. . Kasey Kahne (Last Week: 7th)
Kahnes been racing pretty decent lately. This week he finished 7th which moved him up to 8th in the standings. But at Michigan and Infinieon he struggled.
8. Jeff Gordon (Last Week: 6th)
He only has one top 10 (3rd at infieneon) lately, but he has come close a few times.
9. Martin Truex Jr. (Last Week: 12th)
NASCAR is probbably going to anouse a penilty for truex today (tuesday), but other then that truex hasnt finished out of the top 20 since lowes and he has two top 10s durning that period one of those being a 4th at new hampshire
10. Tony Stewart (Last Week: 9th)
Tony has been racing ok, but not as well as expected. Sure this week he wasnt feeling good and had to pass the car of to yelly, but since the all star race he only has two top 10s and he is still winless.
11.Clint Bowyer (Last Week: 13th)
In the last 3 races he has 2 top 10s, but other then that he hasnt bee racing good lately. I do think this recent sucess will turn him around though.
12. .Denny Hamlin (Last Week: 8th)
Fairly decent finishes for hamlin lately. 8th at new hamshire and 3rd at pocono was good, but other wise his finishes were avg. (14th,27th,26th)
13. Kurt Busch (Last Week: 16th)
His last 5 races has consist of a win a top 5 and three top 10s. He also has been moving up the standings.He's up to 17th.
14. Brian Vickers (Last Week: 18th)
Since lowes his worst finish is 16th.
15. Kevin Harvick (Last Week: 14th)
Decent finishes for harvick lately. All top 15s except for a 30th at infineon.
16.Greg Biffle (Last Week: 10th)
I really droped this guy (perhaps too much). But he hasnt had a decnet run since dover. He has droped to 11th in the standings (only 10 points ahead of harvick whose in 13th) And he finished dead last this week
17. David Ragan (Last Week: 17th)
This weeks 5th is his 2nd best finish all season, but he had a 40th place finish the week before in new hampsire so they pretty much off set each other.
18. Bobby Labonte (Last Week: 19th)
Got his first top 10 last week at new hampsire and followed it up with a solid 13th this week.
19Elliott Sadler (Last Week: Just Missed)
At New Hampsire he got his first top 5 all season, but he couldnt back it up this week. He finished 39th.
20 Ryan Newman (Last Week: 15th)
He has one top 10 since richmond.His average finish for the last 5 races is 24th.
Robby Gordon for his 6th place finish this week.
