MMCC Power Rankings: Week 5

Five weeks down, four different winners and the only two-time winner this season has been a surprise. What a dull race at California. Let's just get to this week's POWER RANKINGS.

1. Greg Biffle (Last Week 1) – He's still in first? Really?

2. Tony Stewart (6) – Stewart having two wins before March can either be a start of a very dominant season, or the first half of an epic post season collapse.

3. Jimmie Johnson (2) – So I guess that golden horseshoe is back in its rightful place.

4. Kevin Harvick (4) – Slow and steady wins the long race, maybe.

5. Dale Earnhardt Jr. (7) – Managed not to wreck anybody this weekend, congratulations.

6. Matt Kenseth (3) – Didn't get the same luck Jimmie Johnson did with the timely caution, why? One word: Horseshoe.

7. Martin Truex Jr. (5) –Still waiting on the real Martin Truex Jr. to show up.

8. Carl Edwards (12) – How many sponsors does this guy have?

9. Ryan Newman (16) – Your owner has two wins, what have you done for him lately?

10. Kyle Busch (17) – Now that's the Kyle Busch we all expected to see week in and week out.

11. Denny Hamlin (8) – I love how Hamlin was trying to justify the pit stop that cost him at least 10 points.

12. Brad Keselowski (9) – Tweeting after an 18th place finish is a lot less interesting.

13. Clint Bowyer (15) – May end up with with a career-best points finish with MWR, if you saw that coming you had Norfolk St. beating Missouri.

14. Paul Menard (10) – The No. 27 car started 27th, now if only he could go back to 10 he may have a shot at the chase.

15. Jeff Burton (11) – I keep waiting for Burton to have a dominating race, Martinsville may be that track.

16. Juan Pablo Montoya (20) – One of the first few cars one lap down, not quite sure how that happened.

17. Mark Martin (NR) – If these runs continue, the No. 55 could be in the owners points championship chase.

18. Kurt Busch (NR) – Where the hell did that finish come from?

19. Kasey Kahne (NR) – Congratulations, you just brought home your first clean car of the season!

20. Jeff Gordon (16) – A victim of one of many pit road speeding penalties, needs to turn it around because 25th in the standings just isn't going to cut it.

DNF: The Rain – The only caution of the race was because of rain. The rain prevented what might have been an awesome battle between Hamlin and Stewart.

  1. I thought Bowyer would be better at MWR than at RCR. They want any of their drivers to win at MWR... while, at RCR, you know the 29 is getting the trick pieces. I didn't have Norfolk State winning though. :(
