FINAL SPRINT CUP SERIES POWER RANKINGS
With a victory in the season-ending race at Homestead-Miami Speedway and his record-tying seventh Sprint Cup Series championship, Jimmie Johnson closes the year atop the final Motor Racing Network Power Rankings. He went into the Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup as the Number-8 seed and is one of thirty-one drivers to win a championship in the sixty-eight-year history of the sport’s top tier. Joey Logano is second in this week’s Rankings with Kyle Busch, Carl Edwards and Kevin Harvick making up the rest of the top five. (For a complete list, visit http://bit.ly/2gGOmvu at MRN.com) … In addition to his five race wins this season, Johnson had one pole (for the July race in New Hampshire). He’s one of fourteen drivers newly qualified for next year’s season-opening special event featuring Cup Series pole winners from the previous year. The race annually kicks off Speedweeks in February … And speaking of Speedweeks, while we are only three days removed from the conclusion of the 2016 season, the 2017 season-opening Daytona 500 is just ninety-five days away!
