After every race I will post our Power Grid, which is the top 11 drivers in my view. Why 11? Because everyone else does a top 10, and #11 TK is my favorite driver, so seems good enough reason for me!
Been very busy the last few weeks. So this Power Grid is going to be done Twitter style, with each update being quite a bit shorter.
1st – Scott Dixon – Up 1 Spot
Since Dario has come back, this is his best shot at a Championship. If not for some bad luck, he could be leading the points right now.
2nd – Will Power – Down 1 Spot
Will just has a hard time with ovals. Lucky for him we only have one more left this season. This is his championship to lose.
3rd – Ryan Hunter-Reay – Up 4 Spots
Two great wins on short ovals. Ryan also has chops on the road/street courses. If he stays strong in the next few races, he could really make this interesting.
4th – Tony Kanaan – No Change
TK is great on the short ovals, and showed it with 2 straight podiums. Just have to wonder if he has enough to get into the winners circle.
5th – James Hinchcliffe – Down 2 Spots
Besides Detroit, where the track ate him, Iowa was his first bad race of the season.
6th – Simon Pagenaud – Down 1 Spot
Continues to be the most consistent driver on the circuit this year.
7th – Helio Castroneves – Down 1 Spot
If he wants a shot at his first championship, really needs to start showing something in the next few races.
8th – Ryan Briscoe – Up 1 Spot
I feel like I haven’t heard from him in weeks.
9th – Dario Franchitti – Down 1 Spot
Besides Indy, this has been quite the nightmare season for Dario. That being said, I’m still not willing to say he is out of the Championship hunt just yet.
10th – Justin Wilson – No Change
If I told you in January that Justin would have a race win, and it wouldn’t be on a road/street would you have believed me?
11th – Graham Rahal – No Change
Needs to spend the rest of the season trying to get more consistant. At times, he has looked like the best Ganassi driver.
