Jimmie Johnson’s once seemingly insurmountable ratings lead seems to be at stake because of an incredible fourteen week run by Brad Keselowski.
Following week sixteen, Johnson topped the rankings with a 126.8 rating. At the same time, Keselowski was 11th in the rankings with an 80.4 rating. Fourteen weeks later, Johnson’s once 46.4 point rating advantage over Keselowski has diminished to 5.5. Over that span, Keselowski has collected 3 wins and 13 top 10s compared to Johnson’s 1 win and 8 top 10s.
Following Johnson and Keselowski are Denny Hamlin, Jeff Gordon, and Kyle Busch. Greg Biffle climbs three spots to seventh and is this week’s biggest mover, while Clint Bowyer falls two spots to sixth and is this week’s biggest loser.
