Racingone Ipower Rankings/I

This week's rankings got a little jumbled up after a wacky weekend at Lowe's Motor Speedway but Jimmie Johnson's Coca-Cola 600 win kept him on top of the heap as the NEXTEL Cup Series heads to Dover this week.

  1. Jimmie Johnson (Previous Ranking: 4th): History-making win at Charlotte for third straight Coca-Cola 600 quiets doubters who thought he might be showing signs for faltering. Take that booing and beer can throwing knuckleheads.
  2. Greg Biffle (Previous Ranking 1st): Stayed in the hunt at Charlotte after battling through late race problems. Knocking on Johnson’s door for the point lead.
  3. Ryan Newman (Previous Ranking 6th): Another Top 5 to back up another pole. Needs a win soon to get respect he deserves.


  4. Elliott Sadler (Previous Ranking 3rd): Got shuffled back in late race pit stop/yellow flag deal in Charlotte or would have been a serious contender to win.
  5. Carl Edwards (Previous Ranking 14th): Where did he come from Sunday night? No factor at all until the end.
  6. Kevin Harvick (Previous Ranking 8th): Managed to finish 14 th at Charlotte despite laughing out loud when Joe Nemechek crashed while in the lead with nine laps to go.
  7. Jeff Gordon (Previous Ranking 5th): Got attacked by his second track in two years when Charlotte’s shoddy racing surface bit him on Sunday. Battled back only to get swept up in another wreck.

  8. Tony Stewart (Previous Ranking 6th): Glad to get out of Charlotte after two disappointing weekends. Looking forward to Dover.

9. Jamie McMurray (Previous Ranking 10th): Was able to bring one Ganassi car home in fair shape this weekend.

  10. Kurt Busch (Previous Ranking 7th): One more bad week and the defending champion is close to getting knocked out of the Power Rankings’ Top 10.
