Five-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson holds onto the top spot in the FOXSports.com/SPEED.com Power Rankings after eight great days of racing. His third Sprint All-Star Race victory ties him for most all time with Jeff Gordon and the late Dale Earnhardt, stout company to be sure.

 

Here are this week’s FOXSports.com/SPEED.com Power Rankings:

1

Jimmie Johnson

2 - 1/20
Three events (Darlington Cup race, Pit Crew Challenge, Sprint All-Star Race) in eight days, three victories for the five-time Sprint Cup champion. He’s back, for sure.

Matt Kenseth

1 2 1/13
The only one of the Roush Fenway Fords not to blow up, Kenseth’s No. 17 was fast all night, but did not get a great restart on the last segment.

3

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 2 1/13
Junior Nation had reason to smile when Earnhardt crushed ‘em in the Sprint Showdown, and he put on a good show in the big race, too.

4

Brad Keselowski

2 5 1/21
The best show of the night was Keselowski outdueling Kasey Kahne in the third segment. Great display of hard, clean racing.

5

Greg Biffle

1 3 1/12
Is the Biff’s mojo starting to slip just a little bit? An exploding engine didn’t help his cause in the all-star race.

6

Kyle Busch

1 - 3/17
The good news was that Busch won the all-star pole and led 14 laps, but he was clearly just a notch behind the top cars.

7

Denny Hamlin

2 4 1/12
Hamlin led 16 laps and finished 20th. Hard to believe, but Joe Gibbs Racing still has never won an all-star race.

8

Tony Stewart

2 1 1/15
Some minor front-splitter damage meant Stewart didn’t have the night he wanted, finishing 17th.

Kevin Harvick

Ryan Newman

1 5 6/22

11

Kasey Kahne

0 2 2/22
Despite a terrifying crash in practice, Kahne put on an electrifying show racing Keselowski for the victory in segment three. He finished the race ninth.

12

Martin Truex Jr.

0 4 3/13
It was surprising and frankly a little disappointing that Truex didn’t transfer into the big show.

13

Carl Edwards

0 3 4/19
When Edwards’ motor blew up, it blew up big, as he finished last among the 23 competitors.

Clint Bowyer

0 2 3/19
It was not a great weekend for Bowyer, who finished 14th in the all-star race.

Marcos Ambrose

0 3 14/21
Hard not to be impressed by the controlled aggression Ambrose brought to the game.

16

AJ Allmendinger

0 - 13/24
What an effort from The ‘Dinger, who recovered from an opening-lap flat tire to finish second in the Showdown.

17

Paul Menard

0 3 7/20
Truthfully, none of the three Richard Childress Racing Chevrolets were especially impressive.

18

Joey Logano

0 2 8/20
Like Truex, Logano was one of those drivers who should have transferred, but didn’t.

Mark Martin

0 1 10/20
It just wasn’t a good weekend for any of the Michael Waltrip Racing Toyotas.

Jeff Burton

0 1 4/21
The strugglefest continues for Burton, who couldn’t transfer into the big show, either.
