Iracingone Power Rankings/I

1. Tony Stewart (Previous Ranking: 1st): By far the strongest car of the night last Saturday in Charlotte, taken out by the tire problems that plagued everyone. Still the man to beat in the title chase.

2. Jimmie Johnson (Previous Ranking: 4th): Despite the troubles dealt everyone else, still an impressive run from back to front on Saturday night on his "home" track.

3. Greg Biffle (Previous Ranking: 5th): Right back in the Top 5 again in Charlotte but the only short track on the "Chase" schedule could be a problem for Biffle who hasn't finished better than 15th at Martinsville.

4. Ryan Newman (Previous Ranking: 2nd): Once again overcame adversity Saturday night at Charlotte and finds himself a mere 17 points off the "Chase" lead halfway through the championship season.

5. Mark Martin (Previous Ranking: 6th): Counted himself out of the title hunt even after winning at Kansas, but a Top 5 run in Charlotte has pulled the veteran right back into the playoff picture.

6. Carl Edwards (Previous Ranking: 10th): The unsung Roush Racing member continues to hang around the championship run and may be a win away from putting himself squarely in the title hunt.

7. Rusty Wallace (Previous Ranking: 3rd): Finishes outside the Top 20 in two of the last three races may have ruined the storybook ending.

8. Matt Kenseth (Previous Ranking: 7th): What's that saying about without bad luck he'd have no luck at all?

9. Kurt Busch (Previous Ranking: 9th): Stuck in 10th in the "Chase" standings but at least getting closer to the leaders.

10. Jeremy Mayfield (Previous Ranking: 8th): Has been a non-factor throughout the first half of the "Chase," yet is only 115 points out of the lead.
