Power Rankings heading into Richmond. Photo credit: Amber Searls-USA TODAY Sports
This week’s edition of the Power Rankings finds many of the consistent top-10 drivers this season scratching their heads after Bristol wondering what happened. To that end, I’ll have a mix of opinions this week — some drivers will disappear for a while because they know better than to do what they did while others will still be rewarded for some consistency in recent weeks.
Dropping off the list this week: 11, 48
New to the list this week: 42, 43
Also, I’m imposing two P6 penalties this week to Jimmie Johnson for his reckless driving which took out four good cars and Kasey Kahne for his hypocritical and asinine comments about Tony Stewart. Both drivers are suspended from the list for this week. See ‘ya next week, boys… maybe.
What do you think? Did your driver make the list? Who would you have included? Excluded? Discuss below!
