With his fifth victory of the season and second in three Chase for the Sprint Cup races, Brad Keselowski moves back atop the / Power Rankings.


The new list, following Sunday’s AAA 400 at Dover International Speedway:








Brad Keselowski

6 2 1/21
Kyle Busch dominated, but Keselowski and crew chief Paul Wolfe played the fuel-mileage game to perfection to score a huge victory.

Jimmie Johnson

3 1 1/20
A fourth-place finish was Johnson’s worst so far in the Chase, but he’s still in very good shape, Chase-wise, as he trails Keselowski by five points.

Denny Hamlin

5 1 1/12
On the one hand, Hamlin got a top 10 at what he says is his worst track. On the other hand, he lost critical ground in the points. Will a lack of fuel mileage haunt him again?

Clint Bowyer

2 2 3/19
Another top 10 for Bowyer, but his performance was only good, not great. Thought he might have finished better.

Jeff Gordon

1 2 2/21
For the fifth time in six races, Gordon finished second or third. And he’s still pretty much out of championship contention.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

1 2 1/13
An early caution during a cycle of green-flag stops meant Junior was a lap down for almost all of the race. Did well to finish 11th.

Tony Stewart

3 2 1/15
The three-time and defending champion said he was worried about this race. Turns out he had good reason.

Kasey Kahne

2 4 2/22
Two disastrous pit stops killed a sure top five for Kahne and maybe his title chances.

Kyle Busch

1 6 3/17
Woulda, coulda, shoulda. How the hell did Busch and this team miss the Chase?

Martin Truex Jr.

0 1 3/13
An excellent run for Truex, who finished sixth.

Kevin Harvick

0 2 1/13
Bottom line? Harvick’s cars simply aren’t fast enough for him to race with the Hendrick and Gibbs cars.

Greg Biffle

2 - 1/12
A tire problem killed any chances of a good finish for Biffle, who is in deep trouble in the Chase.

Matt Kenseth

1 3 1/13
A broken track bar and a crash meant a hugely disappointing finish at one of Kenseth’s best tracks.

Ryan Newman

1 1 6/22
It was not a good day for any of the Stewart-Haas cars, as Newman finished three laps down.

Joey Logano

1 1 8/20
Tenth for Logano was OK, but he was behind both his teammates all day.

Mark Martin

0 - 10/20
Even on a part-time schedule, Martin’s still better than a lot of the drivers out there as he showed with a third-place run.

Carl Edwards

0 2 4/19
The last time Edwards finished in the top five? At Auto Club Speedway in the spring.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear

Paul Menard

0 1 7/20
Still stuck in the neverland of 15th-20th place, Menard needs more speed, just like his teammates.

Marcos Ambrose

1 1 14/21
Ran about where he ranks here, as Ambrose had an afternoon that was OK, but nothing more.
Team: Home | Stats | News | Gear

Jeff Burton

0 1 4/21
The entire Richard Childress Racing organization continues to look lost.
