Fantasy NASCAR Power Rankings


The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has completed 16 of the 36 races. Kevin Harvick finally made his way to Victory Lane. That gives the Cup Series 11 winners in 16 races (Joey Logano’s win at Richmond was encumbered so only 10 winners count in the NASCAR Standings).

Will we see 16 winners before the playoffs begin? We have 10 more races to get 6 winners. Some drivers who have not won have their best tracks coming up. Dale Earnhardt Jr. has been focusing on winning his last race at Daytona, Kyle Busch is good at Kentucky, Matt Kenseth owns New Hampshire, AJ Allmendinger is the best driver at Watkins Glen, Joey Logano has been good at Bristol and Denny Hamlin always runs well at Richmond. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out this season.
