Fantasy NASCAR Driver Power Rankings


The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has now completed the first round of the playoffs and only 12 drivers are left to compete for the championship. Martin Truex Jr., Kyle Busch, Kyle Larson, Brad Keselowski, Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Denny Hamlin, Ricky Stenhouse Jr., Ryan Blaney, Chase Elliott, Matt Kenseth and Jamie McMurray are still alive, while Ryan Newman, Austin Dillon, Kurt Busch and Kasey Kahne are eliminated.

If Kyle Busch wins at Charlotte he will take over the top spot in my rankings next week. Busch has never won at Charlotte in a MENCS regular season race.
