Driver Ratings

Dale Earnhardt Jr. won his second race of the season in Sunday's Pocono 400 and climbed back to the top of this week's Power Rankings:

1. Dale Earnhardt Jr.: Was in position to take advantage of Brad Keselowski's decision to pull out of the lead late in the race and scored his second victory of the season Sunday in Pocono.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 101.2
Point Standings: 3rd
Previous Ranking: 7th

2. Jimmie Johnson: A solid recovery for Johnson who was involved in a pit-road incident with Marcos Ambrose but came back to finish in the top 10.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 108.5
Point Standings: 4th
Previous Ranking: 1st

3. Kevin Harvick: More bad luck and trouble at Pocono didn't hide the fact that once again Harvick had one of the best cars of the weekend.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 107.0
Point Standings: 12th
Previous Ranking: 2nd

4. Brad Keselowski: His decision to try and get the trash of his grille late in the race turned out to be an unfortunate mistake and Keselowski was forced to settle for second in Pocono.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 103.5
Point Standings: 5th
Previous Ranking: 4th

5. Jeff Gordon: An eighth-place finish was good enough to give Gordon back the Sprint Cup Series point lead but the No. 24 team was still disappointed with the Pocono run.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 106.7
Point Standings: 1st
Previous Ranking: 6th

6. Kyle Busch: Not much to write home about for Busch, who once again was involved in an incident with Kasey Kahne late in Sunday's race.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 97.8
Point Standings: 6th
Previous Ranking: 5th

7. Denny Hamlin: Started from the pole and worked his way to the front of the field for a solid, if not spectacular, fourth-place Pocono finish.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 93.2
Point Standings: 8th
Previous Ranking: 10th

8. Joey Logano: An engine failure and 40th-place finish doesn't tell the whole story of Logano, who had a very strong car in Pocono.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 104.6
Point Standings: 9th
Previous Ranking: 8th

9. Carl Edwards: Got swept up in the Kasey Kahne-Kyle Busch skirmish and wound up with a disappointing 41st-place finish.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 86.8
Point Standings: 7th
Previous Ranking: 9th

10. Matt Kenseth: Just a bad weekend for Kenseth, who suffered severe front end damage early in the race after making contact with Jamie McMurray on a restart.

Season-to-Date Driver Rating: 97.2
Point Standings: 2nd
Previous Ranking: 3rd

Dropped Out: None
