2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Driver Rankings: Week 9 Edition
USA TODAY Sports
It's a close race at the top of the BR Sprint Cup Driver Rankings heading into Richmond.

Wins are everything this NASCAR Sprint Cup season. Just remember that.

With the change in the way drivers qualify to get into the Chase for the Sprint Cup party that determines the season's champion over the final 10 races in the fall, where one sits in the points standings in April actually doesn't mean all that much until at least one win is earned to go along with it.

Keep that in mind when perusing the Bleacher Report driver rankings.

These are calculated by who is running up front most consistently and who has been able to translate that into getting to all-important Victory Lane. That takes more than simply driver skill. It also takes teamwork that stretches from the crew chief atop the pit box on race day to what everyone does back at the shop to how good the pit crew is on the money stops late in races. 

See who's running up front in the rankings, taking all of that into account.
