Jimmie Johnson remains the NASCAR Power Rankings leader despite a poor finish at Michigan.  Johnson’s ratings point lead has been cut to just a shade over six points.

Greg Biffle remains in second place this week, followed by Matt Kenseth in third, Brad Keselowski in fourth and Dale Earnhardt Jr. in fifth place.

Carl Edwards climbs two spots and is this week’s biggest mover.  Sam Hornish Jr. and Kasey Kahne also had solid weeks and gained ground on the field.

Kyle Busch only slips one spot, but earns the honor (not really) of being the week’s biggest loser.  Tony Stewart and Kevin Harvick also lost ground at Michigan.
