Fantasy NASCAR Driver Power Rankings


The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs started this week and some of the drivers who were expected to perform well struggled, while some new drivers made an appearance at the top of the leaderboard.

Kyle Busch was given a new pit-crew to start the playoffs and they let him down. Chase Elliott was given a brand new car and he had one of his best races of the season. Teams will continue to try anything to get to Homestead. There should be many changes in the Fantasy NASCAR Driver Power Rankings in the final nine weeks of the season.
