RK DRIVER WINS CHANGE HIGH/LOW COMMENTS
1

Jimmie Johnson

0 - 1/6
Yes, he's got a horseshoe up his butt, but boy, do he and his team know how to make it shine. They're not only good, but lucky, too. That's why they'll probably be atop this chart all year.

Mark Martin

0 - 2/19
Strong start could have the old man rocking by the time the Chase for the Sprint Cup arrives, and that could leave him well-rested enough to seriously challenge his Hendrick teammate.

Kevin Harvick

0 13 1/16
It's a big leap from 16th to third, but RCR is back, and Harvick is its lead dog. He was as impressive at Auto Club Speedway as he was at Daytona, which means RCR and Harvick are legit ...

Jeff Burton

0 7 4/14
... So legit that Burton is following right in his teammate's tire tracks, just like he did in California. He and Harvick both had a chance to win Sunday. The race is on to see who captures the checkered flag first.

Clint Bowyer

0 9 4/15
Not convinced yet? This is the third RCR driver in the top five, more than vaunted Hendrick Motorsports. Bowyer has been so good both his top-10 finishes were disappointments. And he trails only Harvick in the points standings.

Greg Biffle

0 1 3/14
Now things start to get a bit tricky, but the Biff has been the best of the rest. He was 10th in California but would have finished higher had a caution flag not caught him on pit road. He's the best of the Roush bunch right now.

Matt Kenseth

0 5 2/13
He finished seventh in California and was happy, which was "dumb" (his word, not mine) after he won the first two races last season. But Kenseth is happy with the direction of his team with veteran crew chief Todd Parrott now calling the shots.

Kurt Busch

0 2 2/15
He rallied for a solid sixth-place finish in California and is off to a good start with new crew chief Steve Addington. And he hasn't blown his top once.

Kyle Busch

0 - 1/13
The younger Busch settled for his second straight disappointing finish (14th), but led 11 laps and continues to find ways to get to the front. Now if he could figure out how to stay there.

10

Carl Edwards

0 7 3/18
Roush Fenway is still missing something, and Edwards is its biggest mystery. He was a ho-hum 13th in California. Maybe he's just got baby on the brain.

11

Juan Pablo Montoya

0 7 4/20
A blown engine spoiled what would have been another strong run for Montoya. He led 29 laps and was going to be a factor before his day went up in smoke. A slight hiccup for a strong team.

12

Jamie McMurray

0 1 6/20
The Daytona 500 winner is still grinning from ear to ear. He was impressive in California, winning the pole and running in the top five before slipping to 17th. He's fourth in points after two races.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear
13

Tony Stewart

0 6 3/18
Hard to believe he's ranked this low, but Stewart has gotten off to a slow start, finishing just ninth in California. Not unusual. He'll wake up.

14

Jeff Gordon

0 6 2/14
He's more up and down than a yo-yo. One minute he's charging to the front and battling for the lead; the next he's slapping the wall and trying to hang on. Inconsistency has led to a slow start.

15

Denny Hamlin

0 9 1/20
His hopes for a fast start have deflated faster than the two tires that went flat in California.

Kasey Kahne

0 1 9/19
You know how there is always one big star who gets off to a horrible start? Here he is. He's too talented to drop much farther, but if he keeps wrecking ...

Joey Logano

0 - 9/20
Worked his way into our Power Rankings the same way he worked his way into the top five in California -- smooth and methodically.

David Reutimann

0 1 13/20
Steady Reutimann is in the top 10 in points after two races, right where a Chase contender wants to be.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 2 10/20
Kaplunk! That's the sound of Junior Nation's hopes and dreams hitting the toilet after Junior's performance and misfortune in California. Had shades -- and the stench -- of 2009.

Scott Speed

0 - 15/20
I can hear you now -- "What are you, an idiot?" Nope, turns out Speed is fast indeed. He's led both races, finished 11th Sunday and has climbed from outside the top 35 to 15th in points. Turns out the guy with painted toenails can drive.
