NASCAR Sprint Cup Power Rankings: Top 15 Drivers Coming out of Richmond

Ladies and gentlemen, meet the 2011 field for the Sprint Cup Chase for the Championship.

Despite the wreckfest otherwise known as the Wonderful Pistachios 400 at Richmond International Raceway, the Chase field remained unchanged in the final race before the Chase.

Tony Stewart, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Denny Hamlin did what they had to do to maintain their positions within the field. In added drama, Hamlin and Earnhardt were forced to battle back from early wrecks.

Kevin Harvick pulled off an impressive victory by holding off Carl Edwards in the closing laps at Richmond. With the win, Harvick tied Kyle Busch for the series lead in victories and joined Busch atop the standings with the points reset for the Chase.

But the real story of the race was the series of wrecks and retaliations between five-time defending champion Jimmie Johnson and long-time antagonist Kurt Busch.

The drivers in the Chase field obviously make up the bulk of the power rankings this week. Who else makes the top 15?
