Season-to-Date Driver Ratings

Brad Keselowski jumps back to the top spot in the Power Rankings after reclaiming the NASCAR Series points lead with his second win in the Chase at Dover International Speedway.

1. Brad Keselowski: Has put together five wins at a quintet of diverse tracks with two Chase victories carrying him to the top of the point standings.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 98.0
Point Standings: First
Previous Ranking: Second

2. Jimmie Johnson: The fuel mileage strategy game has not been a strong suit of the No. 48 team over the years and it cost Johnson a win Sunday at Dover.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 109.9
Point Standings: Second
Previous Ranking: First

3. Denny Hamlin: At least a moral and psychological victory for Hamlin at Dover where despite also getting caught short on fuel the Joe Gibbs Racing driver performed well over the weekend.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 103.7
Point Standings: Third
Previous Ranking: Fourth

4. Dale Earnhardt Jr: "Junior Nation" is getting restless after another average Chase outing in Dover with an 11th place finish for Earnhardt Jr.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 98.1
Point Standings: Seventh
Previous Ranking: Third

5. Tony Stewart: While Dover has not been a favorite of Stewart's in recent years, even the defending series champion had to be surprised with the 20th place effort on Sunday.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 88.4
Point Standings: Fifth
Previous Ranking: Fifth

6. Kasey Kahne: Was well on his way to another solid Chase finish until a vibration sent Kahne to pit road and then a speeding penalty completely ruined his Dover Day.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 94.8
Point Standings: Sixth
Previous Ranking: Sixth

7. Clint Bowyer: Decent day at the "Monster Mile" for Bowyer who continues to stay within striking distance of the series point lead.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 94.1
Point Standings: Fourth
Previous Ranking: Seventh

8. Martin Truex Jr: Not a bad day in Dover for the homecoming weekend but Truex Jr. needs to step things up in a hurry to remain a legitimate Chase contender in the coming weeks.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 97.6
Point Standings: Eighth
Previous Ranking: Tenth

9. Greg Biffle: Another stumble for the driver who led the regular season point standings as Biffle dealt with a flat tire Sunday afternoon at Dover.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 100.7
Point Standings: Ninth
Previous Ranking: Ninth

10. Jeff Gordon: Would love a do over for his Chicago Chase opening outing since Gordon has been very strong the last two weeks including a second place finish on Sunday.

Point Standings: 10th
Previous Ranking: N/R
