Kyle Busch maintains the NASCAR Power Rankings lead, but Jimmie Johnson is gaining momentum. Jeff Gordon moves up to third place following his win in Atlanta. Carl Edwards sits in fourth and Matt Kenseth is in fifth position.
Brad Keselowski moves up to seventh and is one of the biggest movers for the sixth consecutive week. A.J. Allmendinger (up four spots) is the biggest mover of the week. Greg Biffle and Jeff Gordon also had solid weeks.
On the flip side, Marcos Ambrose is the biggest loser of the week, falling four spots to 21st place overall. Ryan Newman, Joey Logano and Carl Edwards all also had difficult weeks.
