NASCAR Drivers Ranked

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

1. Kyle Busch (Joe Gibbs Racing, Standings: 4th)

Kyle Busch stays at the top spot in Sportsnaut’s NASCAR power rankings, despite finishing in 37th place on Sunday evening. Busch was leading the field before he and his teammate Martin Truex Jr. spun out while in the front due to very poor conditions on the track caused by rain. This ended his day early, but he looks to bounce back in three weeks at Watkins Glen.

2. Kurt Busch (Chip Ganassi Racing, Standings: 14th)

3. Brad Keselowski (Team Penske, Standings: 9th)

4. Alex Bowman (Hendrick Motorsports, Standings: 11th)
