There was quite a bit of moving and shaking in the Power Rankings from last week. Let’s take a look at how they stack up!
10. Clinton Snead (-3)
Snead struggled in Talladega and was only able to come away with a best finish of 14th in race 2. He loses 3 spots in the Power Rankings but manages to stay in the Top 10 as he looks forward to the rest of the season.
9. Ryan Blume (-5)
With two finishes outside the Top 10 this week, Talladega was not the night that Ryan hoped for. As a result, he falls down the Power Rankings. He will need a solid performance in Kansas to work his way back toward the top.
8. Clint Castleberry (UR)
Castleberry joined the series for this week’s race in Talladega and kicked things off with a P4 finish in race 1 before just missing a Top 10 in race 2.
7. Jonathan Tuckness (-2)
Jonathan struggled to get anything going in Talladega and only managed a best of a 10th place finish. He will certainly be looking to rebound as we head back to an Intermediate track next week.
6. Joseph Plauger (+3)
Joseph had a quiet, steady night in Talladega and picked up a pair of Top 10 finishes. These results move him up 3 spots in this weeks Power Rankings, and he hopes to continue that climb next week in Kansas.
5. Nathan Rogge (UR)
Nathan was a series newcomer this week and certainly made his presence known. If he continues to perform at a high level, he will undoubtedly continue to move up the Power Rankings.
4. Bradley Rivers (+4)
Bradley had a great night of racing in Talladega and finished the night with a podium finish in race 2. He looks to build on that momentum as the season continues.
3. Gabriel Ellison
Ellison managed a pair of Top 10s at Talladega to hold onto 3rd place in the Power Rankings. He will certainly want to find his way back to Victory Lane next week.
2. Michael Sturgill (-1)
Three second place finishes in a row has Sturgill in a really strong spot to start the season, but he is still going to be the bridesmaid in this week’s rankings. He will be looking to do one spot better next week at Kansas.
1. Nicholas Gowin (+1)
Nicholas Gowin dominated the Talladega Turkey Trot and picked up both wins for the night. With 3 wins in 4 races, he solidly moves to the number 1 spot in the this week’s Power Rankings.
