Final Rankings: Talladega I, 2013

Here are my final driver rankings for today’s race at Talladega. I had to abandon my usual process because qualifying was rained out and the practice data isn’t comprehensive or consistent.

    Yeah, Kenseth has been lightning fast on the plates lately. Just needs a little luck.

    I actually had Ragan on my PaytheFan team, but then switched him out at the last minute. >:-(
