sliding up 7 spots in the overall rankings

Donny Schatz maintains the top spot in this week’s poll, although his cushion over 2nd was narrowed significantly by a surging Greg Hodnett.

The biggest mover of the week was Craig Dollansky, who moved up seven spots to the 10th position. Moving up six spots and landing in the 9th position was Kerry Madsen.

Five drivers made their debut in our Top 25 rankings, led by Rico Abreu in the 17th spot. Other drivers joining the rankings for the first time are Lucas Wolfe (18), Cole Duncan (21), Tim Kaeding (24), & Byron Reed (25).

  1. While this poll is close to being correct, it is selected by media or press members. Not having a fan or fans to make there selections or to have some representation in the process, which I feel fans should have more of a say in this selection process.
