Fantasy NASCAR Driver Power Rankings


The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has now completed the first race of the Round of 12. There are a lot of good drivers who will need a good finish at Talladega next week. That is easier said then done.

I had Kyle Busch ready to take over the top spot in my power rankings and then he went out and laid an egg at Charlotte. Martin Truex Jr. is still the best choice in Fantasy NASCAR but Kevin Harvick and Chase Elliott are proving they belong at the top of the rankings as well.

Here are my Fantasy NASCAR Power Rankings as the series heads to Talladega…
