Each and every week Beyond The Flag will present our Making The Grade series. Each edition of the series will highlight various drivers from that weeks race and give them a grade based on that week’s performance as well as their season performance thus far. Each edition will feature drivers with passing grades as well as failing grades. The drivers who make the cut each week will be the ones who stand out for one reason or another. In this edition you will find the grades from Sunday’s 500 from Phoenix.
