2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Driver Rankings: Week 12 Edition
Associated Press
Did Jeff Gordon's win at Kansas secure him the top spot, or did his hopes go up in flames in the Sprint All-Star Race?

A chaotic last two weeks have caused some shuffling at the top of the Bleacher Report NASCAR Sprint Cup driver rankings.

Jeff Gordon, the points leader most of the season, finally earned his first win of the year at Kansas to go along with all the solid but non-winning runs he had earlier. But then his car burst into flames after hitting the wall during the subsequent Sprint All-Star Race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

So where does that leave him?

And what about his Hendrick Motorsports teammateswhich include defending Cup champion Jimmie Johnson and Dale Earnhardt Jr.? Where do they stand?

It's all based on results, momentum and current chemistry between the drivers and their teams, most importantly their crew chiefs. There is a fine line between getting hot and going up in flames, as Gordon found out.

See who stands where as the Sprint Cup Series prepares to run NASCAR's longest race, the Coca Cola 600.
