Power Rankings: Gordon And Logano Surge, While Junior And Harvick Plummet

What do Jet Driers and Air Titans have in common? They have combined to lead the most laps this season. For third time in seven races, rain has played havoc with NASCAR on race day. The season-opening Daytona 500 was delayed more than six hours as a massive storm system washed through the middle parts of Florida.

Once the race began, the action was fast and furious as drivers like Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano and Jimmie Johnson traded the top spot. But then another rain shower hit the track after drivers completed only 125 laps. Unfortunately, the second rain delay turned out to be anything but a quick rinse as the race was delayed by more than three hours. As … [Read more...]
