Sprint Cup Power Rankings - Texas

1. Jeff Burton - He's now led a lap in five of the first six races and has finished in the top-15 in each race.

2. Tony Stewart - He hasn't won yet but he's still sitting well in the standings after posting a solid finish on Sunday.

3. Kyle Busch - Two straight mediocre finishes for Busch and the momentum he had to start the season is slowly fading away.

4. Kevin Harvick - He's still moseying about quietly in the top-10.

5. Dale Earnhardt Jr. - He's still higher in the standings than Gordon and Johnson, despite finishing worse than the two on Sunday.

6. Jeff Gordon - Gordon says he likes Texas, but his stats tell a different story. He has yet to win at Texas and has yet to post back-to-back top-10s this season.

7. Carl Edwards - It's time for another 1.5 mile track where Edwards has been head and shoulders above the rest, so far this season.

8. Greg Biffle - Well, he wasn't going to finish well in every race and his struggles at Martinsville were well-documented before the race began Sunday. Texas should be a different story.

9. Denny Hamlin - He finally got a burst of momentum he needed with a win on Sunday, but whether or not he can maintain it is another story.

10. Kasey Kahne - He's the only Dodge in the top-10 in points right now.

11. Clint Bowyer - A top-10 finish at Martinsville drops Bowyer to 10th in the points standings, oddly enough, but RCR still has all three drivers in the top-12 in points.

12. Jimmie Johnson - It was no surprise to see Johnson finish well at Martinsville but now the drivers head to another 1.5 mile track where the 48 team has struggled so far.
