Kevin Harvick came out of nowhere and won for the third time this season by winning the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte. Despite the win, Carl Edwards still remains at the top of the NASCAR Power Rankings.
Kyle Busch sits in second place behind Edwards. Jimmie Johnson is in third place, followed by Kevin Harvick and Clint Bowyer.
Kurt Busch is our biggest mover in this week’s Power Rankings, thanks to his fourth place finish. Marcus Ambrose, Denny Hamlin and AJ Allmendinger join Busch with solid weeks of their own.
On the flip side, Ryan Newman is the biggest loser of the week, followed by Kasey Kahne, Jeff Gordon and Martin Truex Jr.
