NASCAR 2013 Power Rankings: Three Down, 33 to Go...Bring on Bristol, Baby

As we put together the second edition of Power Rankings for the 2013 Sprint Cup season, there has obviously been a lot of movement in and out of the top 20 from our preseason Power Rankings heading into the season-opening Daytona 500. We actually had 23 drivers in the preseason rankings, but going forward from here it'll be the top 20.

Be that as it may, five of the drivers we had in the top-23 of the preseason rankings are no longer in this list, including Danica Patrick, Jeff Burton, Ryan Newman, Kurt Busch and Juan Pablo Montoya.

This week's edition is not necessarily based on the top 20 drivers in this week's standings after Las Vegas, but it rather gives credit to drivers who made some of the biggest jumps upward in the standings.

As we count down this edition of Power Rankings, we list where the driver currently is in the actual Sprint Cup standings heading into Sunday's fourth race of the season at Bristol Motor Speedway, where he was in Bleacher Report's preseason rankings, and where he's at in this week's BR rankings.
