Mid-Week Rankings: Dover I, 2012

Here are my early driver rankings for this week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Dover. I compiled them by crunching:

  • The loop data for the past 15 Sprint Cup races (excluding Daytona and Talladega);
  • the loop data for the past four races (excluding Daytona and Talladega);
  • the loop data for the past four races at Dover;
  • the loop data for the past seven races at the other tracks in the Steeps track group (i.e., Bristol, Darlington, Homestead, Las Vegas);
  • the practice and qualifying data for the past four races at Dover; and
  • the practice and qualifying data for past seven races at the aforementioned Steeps.

The results:
