Fantasy NASCAR Power Rankings


The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series has completed 12 of the 36 races. I cannot believe the season is already 1/3 of the way complete. We are still waiting to see one of the Joe Gibbs Racing cars make it to Victory Lane, but it looks like it may happen soon after their performance at Charlotte.

Usually the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series goes through a change after the All-Star race. The teams who struggle early in the season tend to catch up with the teams who dominated the first 11 races. It looks like it is going to happen again. Team Penske Racing and Chip Ganassi Racing are coming back to the pack while Joe Gibbs Racing and Richard Childress Racing are starting to show improvement.
