Jimmie Johnson continues to lead in the latest NASCAR Power Rankings, but his lead over Brad Keselowski has shrunk with one race to go.  Kyle Busch moves up a spot to third and Clint Bowyer slips to fourth place.  Kasey Kahne rounds out the top five.

Denny Hamlin moves up two spots to sixth and is this week’s biggest mover.  The Busch brothers and Kasey Kahne also land on the big mover list, all with solid weeks at Phoenix.

On the flip side, Jeff Gordon falls from fifth to seventh biggest and is this loser.  Regan Smith, Clint Bowyer and Greg Biffle also lost ground in the latest rankings.
