2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Driver Rankings: Week 7 Edition

The field is crowded at the top of the latest Bleacher Report NASCAR driver rankings.

With six different winners in the first six races of the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season, it's tight at the top both in the actual point standings and in the latest edition of the Bleacher Report driver rankings.

Last week's race at Martinsville Speedway will be remembered for the possible beginning of a feud between former teammates in Brad Keselowski and Kurt Busch almost as much as Busch's terrific battle for the win with six-time Cup champion Jimmie Johnson.  

There was plenty of beatin' and bangin' at the Martinsville short track and at the Bristol Motor Speedway  bullring before that. Now it's onto 1.5-mile Texas Motor Speedway and a track like no other in 1.366-mile Darlington Raceway, with its egg-shaped layout and high-banked turns that test a driver's skill and patience for a full 500 miles.

Who is on the move up or down in the rankings has to do with more than just the drivers, however. Are their crew chiefs making the right calls? Are their pit crews flawless on the money stops? And can everyone keep their heads on straight when adversity inevitably rears its ugly head?

See who is poised to put it all together in the coming weeks.
