Hello, Six Time.
After falling out of the bi-weekly B/R driver rankings for the first time this year—or in any recent year, for that matter—six-time NASCAR Sprint Cup champion Jimmie Johnson charged hard in his No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet to make it back in a hurry.
Johnson has won the last two points races at Charlotte and Dover, respectively, and now is one of a trio of drivers with two wins apiece this season (Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano being the others). But is it enough to rank Johnson No. 1?
And what about the rest of the top 10? Based not only on number of wins (although that is the No. 1 criteria) but also momentum over recent weeks, communication and chemistry with crew chiefs and pit crews, and whether or not the organization they drive for is consistently placing fast race cars underneath them, read on to see who ranks where this week.
