NASCAR: Power Rankings – The New England 300 From New Hampshire Motor 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 Chase opener at Chicagoland Speedway as the series returns to New Hampshire?
Just like in the past, the Chase opener at Chicagoland Speedway showed us that it’s OK to stumble a bit in the early rounds, but that stumbling early in a race is preferred to stumbling late. Truex, Jr. was able to overcome early-race issues on Sunday, while Johnson, Harvick and Larson had their issues too late to mount a comeback.
The series and the Chase now make their return trip to New Hampshire Motor Speedway next Sunday. Matt Kenseth won there in July, so if I was a JGR or JGR-affiliated team next weekend, I’d take my chances.
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!
