2014 NASCAR Sprint Cup Driver Rankings: Week 20 Edition

There is a change at the top in the B/R NASCAR Sprint Cup driver rankings.

There is movement and grumbling at the top of the Bleacher Report NASCAR Sprint Cup driver rankings.

While Brad Keselowski obviously is on the move in the right direction with two victories in the last three races, how about a shoutout for the manufacturer of the race car he and others drive? That would be Ford, of course.

Keselowski drives the No. 2 Ford for Team Penske, and his win at New Hampshire gave Ford its fourth consecutive Sprint Cup win for the first time since 2001. It came on the heels of Carl Edwards' win in the No. 99 Roush Fenway Ford at Sonoma, Keselowski's win at Kentucky and Aric Almirola's win at Daytona in the No. 43 Ford he drives for Richard Petty Motorsports.

Meanwhile, Jimmie Johnson wrecked out of two races in a row in his No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and disagreed with Goodyear when the tire manufacturer blamed his tire issues at New Hampshire on Johnson's team failing to inflate his tires to the recommended pressure.

"I can promise you one thing, it wasn't low tire pressure," Johnson insisted to reporters afterward, via FoxSports.com's Jay Pennell.

Now, with just seven races left before the Chase for the Sprint Cup, see which drivers are positioning themselves to best handle all the pressure that is on its way.
