The Wife Hates Sports has vowed to get more involved with NASCAR this season.  That why I would like to announce friend of TWHS Bill Schneider, who will be presenting his NASCAR power rankings on a weekly basis.

After the race at Fontana, Carl Edwards took over as the new Sprint Cup Series points leader, but Kyle Busch jumped three spots to the top this week’s power rankings.

As Busch leads the way, Carl Edwards lands right behind him in second place.  Tony Stewart is in third, followed by Ryan Newman in fourth and Jimmie Johnson in fifth.

The Wife Hates NASCAR Power Rankings are calculated by factoring in finishes of 20th or better and average running positions of 20th or better.  In addition, every race carries 4% more weight than the previous one.
