Jimmie Johnson wasn’t going to let this one get away. After a couple of botched late-race restarts cost him big in recent weeks, Johnson made sure to seal the deal in Saturday night’s Coke Zero 400 at Daytona International Speedway.

With his dominating victory, Johnson becomes the first driver to sweep both Daytona races in a single season since Bobby Allison in 1982. And he moves back to the top of the FOXSports.com/SPEED.com Power Rankings this week.

This week’s list:
 

+6

Stewart

-3

Kenseth

1

Jimmie Johnson

0 1 1/7
It appears as if Johnson, crew chief Chad Knaus and the rest of the No. 48 team are in peak form, a scary thought for the competition. A six-pack is looking like a real possibility.

2

Kevin Harvick

0 1 1/15
By coming home third behind Johnson and future boss Tony Stewart, Harvick finished in the top 10 for the eighth consecutive week. No lame in his game.

3

Clint Bowyer

0 1 2/15
As usual, Bowyer was plenty stout at a plate race, moving to second in points with a fourth-place run

4

Matt Kenseth

0 3 1/9
Although his Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota was plenty fast, Kenseth was caught in a crash not of his own making, winding up 33rd.

5

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 1 1/14
A good run for Earnhardt, who finished eighth, although not the victory his loyal fans were hoping for.

6

Kurt Busch

0 4 2/19
For the first time all year, Busch is now in the top 10 in points after coming home sixth at Daytona. He could well make some title noise this year.

7

Carl Edwards

0 2 1/19
Like many of his peers, Edwards’ race ended in frustration. In this case, the result was a 29th-place finish.

8

Kyle Busch

0 - 1/16
Although he led early on, Busch got caught up in the end-of-race mayhem and wound up 12th. Could have been better, could have been worse.

Tony Stewart

0 6 1/20
Always fast at Daytona — especially in July — Stewart came up just shy of victory, finishing second to Johnson.

Greg Biffle

0 3 4/18
Another struggle for Biffle, who got clipped in an early crash and had to rally back to end his night in 17th.

Martin Truex Jr.

0 2 9/20
Few drivers in the second 10 in points had good nights, including Truex, who crashed out and finished 41st.

12

Kasey Kahne

0 - 2/15
Fast car, bad finish. Fast car, bad finish. Lather, rinse, repeat. Been that kind of year for Kahne

Joey Logano

0 2 3/19
After a string of strong results in recent weeks, a cut tire led to a huge disappointment for Logano.

Jeff Gordon

0 1 3/18
The fifth finish of 30th or worse on the season for Gordon, who has had a second consecutive season of rotten racing luck.
