NASCAR: Power Rankings – The Ford EcoBoost 400 From Homestead-Miami Speedway
Once again, it’s time for our weekly NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Power Rankings. Who is at the top of our list following the CanAm 500K from Phoenix as the series heads to Homestead-Miami Speedway to settle the 2016 Sprint Cup Championship?
The series’ penultimate race at Phoenix yesterday delivered everything one could expect from a race which in some respects, was just as vital to determining the Champion as next week will be. There was the silver-spoon boy and the No. 48 exiting early in the same incident, a substitute driver leading the most laps and drama at the end which included pit strategy, wrecks and overtime.
Jimmie Johnson, Carl Edwards, Joey Logano and Kyle Busch will vie for the Championship next weekend at Homestead-Miami Speedway. The excitement is not lost on the other 36 drivers, as they too have a multitude of reasons to capture one more checkered flag. We would also be remiss if we did not give a salute to three-time Champion and future Hall of Fame member Tony Stewart as he concludes his Sprint Cup driving career.
Be sure to leave comments here or reach us via social media to discuss where your favorite driver is on the list, or to tell us who should be on/off the list in your opinion!
