Power Rankings – Charlotte

The NASCAR Sprint Cup Series will race 600 miles from the sun of the afternoon to under the lights Sunday night. The closing act of a full day of motorsports, it will be a battle of speed and endurance for both drivers and COTs.

The Power Rankings tells you who we think will be burning up the track. Feel free to let us know your thoughts, send us an email. Power Rankings
Kyle Busch ? The only question is how long this hot streak will last. Nothing seems to deter him, the fans wrath seems to fire him up even more.

Carl Edwards ? Cookie cutter tracks are Carl?s specialty. He will be one to watch this week.

Dale Earnhardt Jr. ? Continuing to be the top of the class at Hendrick Motorsports, it will be interesting to see if he has a better result than Jimmie Johnson.

Jimmie Johnson ? Clearly the king of his sponsors named track, Johnson has yet to show the flawless form of last year.

Greg Biffle – Biffle runs well here and should have a better result than last week. The disastrous Darlington run better be in the past if Roush-Fenway wants to keep Greg around after this year.

Denny Hamlin ? The engine issues of the All Star weekend should be forgotten. Well, hopefully for Denny?s sanity.

Jeff Gordon ? Still waiting for Gordon to have his normally expected results. One concern is that the ?Texas? setup demons rear their heads.

Tony Stewart ? Another driver that isn?t having the season one may be looking for. Tony normally starts slow but the hot streak should happen soon.

Mark Martin ? When you think of a racecar driver that is suited for the grueling 600 miles at Charlotte, you think of Mark Martin. Look for him to be around at the end.

Others to watch:
Kasey Kahne – Last week’s All Star winner has momentum on his side.
David Ragan ? Currently in the chase, can he keep it there.
Matt Kenseth – Currently NOT in the chase, can he get it there.
Elliott Sadler ? He is owed one after being spun in the open.
Kurt Busch ? It?s getting down to crunch time for Kurt, he needs to move up in the points.
Jaun Pablo Montoya ? He is not a happy camper this week with the crew chief change.
