Greg Biffle’s mediocre run at Martinsville has allowed others to tighten the gap in the latest NASCAR Power Rankings.  That includes second ranked Dale Earnhardt Jr., who is now just over ten ratings points from first place.

Ryan Newman, meanwhile, moves up two spots following his win and sits in eleventh position.

AJ Allmendinger is this week’s biggest mover after finishing second, jumping up five spots in the rankings.  Jeff Gordon and Aric Almirola move up four spots in the poll.     

Kevin Harvick falls six spots to eighth and is this week’s biggest loser.  Kyle Busch also had a brutal week, dropping four spots to 14th place.

The Wife Hates Sports has vowed to get more involved with NASCAR, and that’s why I am proud to introduce Bill Schneider, who will present his NASCAR power ratings on a weekly basis.  I know you will see his ratings system as unique and different than the rest.  He also infuses stats and involves recent results during the NASCAR season. – Kevin Paul
