Suddenly, Jimmie Johnson is on a roll.  Leading 272 of the 400 laps at the FedEx 400, Johnson cruised to his second straight victory.  It was his ninth career win at Dover.  The dominating performance launched Johnson up three more spots to third place in the latest edition of NASCAR Power Rankings at The Wife Hates Sports.

Jeff Gordon’s 15th place finish at Dover was enough to keep him in first place, while Matt Kenseth moved up two spots to second.  The aforementioned Johnson lands in third, as Joey Logano and Brad Keselowski round out the top five.

Clint Bowyer is the biggest mover of the week, jumping five spots into the top fifteen.  Meanwhile, Kevin Harvick and Greg Biffle are the biggest losers of the week.  Biffle and Harvick each drop five slots in the latest rankings.
