Racingone Power Rankings

The latest edition of the RacingOne NEXTEL Cup Series Power Rankings as the series heads to the Pepsi 400 at Daytona International Speedway this weekend, which features NASCAR's new comprehensive statistical ratings system using a detailed formula to calculate each driver's performance.

Editor's Note: Top 10 rankings are generated by a formula combining the following categories: Win, Finish, Top-15 Finish, Average Running Position While on Lead Lap, Average Speed Under Green, Fastest Lap, Led Most Laps, Lead-Lap Finish. Maximum: 150 points per race.

1. Greg Biffle (Last week's ranking: 2nd)
A good run in Sonoma keeps the momentum alive, can he repeat his 2003 Pepsi 400 victory this weekend?

2. Matt Kenseth (Last week's ranking: 1st)
Tough day at Infineon with a 17th place finish and now headed to Daytona, which hasn't been kind over the years.

3. Jimmie Johnson (Last week's ranking: 3rd)
A sweep of Daytona would be icing on an already sweet cake.

4. Tony Stewart (Last week's ranking: 4th)
A complete opposite run from a year ago that needs to turn around quickly or else face the possibility of dropping out of the Top 10.

5. Kasey Kahne (Last week's ranking: 4th)
Sitting third in the standings with Daytona looming, where his best finish has been 11th.

6. Jeff Gordon (Last week's ranking: 9th)
Did the Sonoma win jump start the No. 24 or was it just road course mastery at work?

7. Mark Martin (Last week's ranking: 6th
Only two more plate races left for Martin, which is sure to put a smile on his face.

8. Jeff Burton (Last week's ranking: 8th)
A three year high for him in the point standings but no roon for a let down.

9. Dale Earnhardt, Jr. (Last week's ranking: 7th
Will the restrictor plate magic return for a Daytona win on Saturday?

10. Kurt Busch (Last week's ranking: NR)
37th and 38th in his last two Daytona starts - no room for another disappointing finish.
