NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 after Fontana

  The name of the game in California was tires, tires, tires! Green flag runs never lasted more than 25 laps. Like clockwork, Goodyear flats arose, and it seemed like no one was safe. Every team, it seemed, couldn’t escape the problem. Drivers from Hendrick Motorsports, Stewart-Haas Racing, Penske Racing, Roush Fenway, Michael Waltrip Racing and others were all on pit road – or in the wall – with flat tires.Almost every ranked driver after Bristol had an issue on ...

NASCAR National Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Bristol

Mother Nature has virtually punched her ticket into the 2014 Chase as rain once again delayed a Sprint Cup race; this time, twice in one day. The eight-hour event was eventually run in its entirety, with Carl Edwards becoming the fourth different driver to win in as many races. Tire strategy got Edwards to the lead and he never looked back, pacing the field for a total of 78 laps. After a career-best start to his season with two second-place ... Read More »

Kevin Harvick could barely contain his excitement during the offseason, and now we know why. The driver knew his new team would be strong and he proved that Sunday. Happy held a wide smile after leading 224 laps, taking his first win of the 2014 season and first for Stewart-Haas Racing in only his second points-paying start.   Dale Earnhardt, Jr. rode the wave from his Daytona 500 victory finishing second, once again the highest-running Hendrick Motorsports driver.

NASCAR National Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 After Daytona

Rain, tornado warnings, countless lightning strikes, and an impressive performance by Air Titan (who even received a Power Rankings vote) dominated Sunday’s Daytona proceedings. When Mother Nature finally let up, though more than six hours of waiting couldn’t keep Dale Earnhardt, Jr. from writing his name into the history books with a second Daytona 500 victory late Sunday night. Denny Hamlin finished second, only one position away from a weekend sweep after winning the Sprint Unlimited and his Duel. Brad ... Read More »

NASCAR Writer Power Rankings: Preseason Top 15

  It seems like only yesterday Jimmie Johnson was dubbed “Six-Pack” but yes, another racing season is upon us. NASCAR has already made national headlines after rookie Austin Dillon, just 23 years old put the famed No. 3 on the pole for Sunday’s Daytona 500. It’s the first time that particular number has been entered in a Sprint Cup event since Dale Earnhardt lost his life in the 2001 edition of The Great American Race. The offseason proved a busy ...

NASCAR Writer Power Rankings: Top 15 After Talladega I

Well, how about that!? It was David and David against Goliath at Talladega and, much like the popular fairytale, David won. At a racetrack that produces unlikely winners, the Front Row Motorsports teammates didn't disappoint, claiming the team's first win and sweeping the top two positions over the powerhouses of Hendrick, Gibbs and others. They said anyone can win at the restrictor plate racetracks, but you still have to be around on the final lap. David and David both avoided multiple big ones, a three-hour rain delay and made the right move coming off turn four of the final lap. Read More »

NASCAR Writer Power Rankings: Top 15 After Richmond I

Frontstretch Power Rankings Kevin Harvick proved once again why he’s called “Mr. Where Did He Come From!?” and “The Closer.” Harvick took four tires during the final caution, charging from seventh place on the green-white-checkered restart to take the lead. That divebomb move gave him his first race of the 2013 season and 20th victory of his Cup Series career. Behind them, Kurt Busch and Tony Stewart took part in some post-race extracurricular activities after a bump-and-run during the two-lap shootout shook up the finishing order. But perhaps the biggest side story was Juan Pablo Montoya, who led 67 laps and finished fourth, his first top 5 in a points-paying race since a fourth-place result at Martinsville in April 2011. Jeff Burton also ran well, finishing fifth, his first top-5 result of the season. Read More »

Kenseth was strong all day, running inside the top 10, but proved that clean air trumps fresh tires on 1.5-mile tracks with the new Gen-6 car.&nbsp;</div><div><br /></div><div>While much of the news revolved around Denny Hamlin&rsquo;s negative comments about the Gen-6 chassis, costing him $25,000 Las Vegas showed the positive side of the new design. Kasey Kahne began the dig out of his early-season hole, leading a race-high 114 laps and finishing second. Brad Keselowski, winding up in third place now stands alone as the only driver with top-5 results in every race so far this season. A little further back, Carl Edwards followed up his win last week with a second consecutive top-5 finish, showing he&#39;ll be a 2013 contender. And then, of course there was Jimmie Johnson, on cruise control to sixth place and the edge atop the Sprint Cup point standings. </div><div>&nbsp;</div><div> Who are you <em>not </em>going to see move up the poll this week? Stewart-Haas Racing, who continued to struggle, with Tony Stewart bringing home a team-high 11th.
