Thanks to a late race pit call to only take two tires, Matt Kenseth won for the second time this season by winning the FedEx 400 Benefiting Autism Speaks at Dover.  This also makes him our biggest mover in this week’s NASCAR Power Rankings.

Despite not making the right tire call at the end and finishing behind Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards moves ahead of Busch in the rankings because of his average running position of 3.1.

So, it’s Edwards in the lead, followed by Kyle Busch in second and Jimmie Johnson in third.  Clint Bowyer and Kevin Harvick round out this week’s top five.

Matt Kenseth is the biggest mover of the week, jumping six spots in the latest rankings.  Marcos Ambrose, Mark Martin and Jeff Burton all had good weeks, as well.

On the flip side, Paul Menard is the biggest loser of the week.  Jamie McMurray, Joey Logano and Ryan Newman also had tough weeks in the rankings.

Here is the latest rankings, following the Week 11 race at Dover:
