Updated Driver Rankings for Las Vegas


The Cup Series had their practice session Saturday and then set the field through qualifying. It was their first real practice session in 2023 (The practice at Daytona was more a shack down of the cars). The field was set through qualifying immediately after practice and the cars will be impounded for the race Sunday.

I analyzed all of the key stats, looked at the short and long-run speeds from practice, text a few friends who work in the NASCAR garage and now I have an idea of which drivers should finish up front Sunday.

Here are my final Driver Rankings for the Pennzoil 400

1. Joey Logano
