For the first time since after the Atlanta race, Kyle Busch is no longer atop the NBC Sports NASCAR Power Rankings ‘ for the double-8 car.
Here’s how this week’s Power Rankings look heading into this weekend’s All-Star Race at Charlotte:
1. Chase Elliott (40 points): Has led 235 laps over the last three races and finished in the top five in each. Last week: 3rd.
2. Alex Bowman (30 points): Three 2s (runner-up finishes) for the double-8 car. That’s a full house poker hand but still leaves him short of winning. Last week: 6th.
3. Kyle Busch (29 points): It’s tough to lose the top spot in the rankings, but just like his fluke disappointing finish at Kansas, Busch will bounce back and be a man on a mission in the Coca-Cola 600. Last week: 1st.
