Mid-Week Rankings: Bristol II, 2013

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

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

The results:

  1. Kyle Busch
  2. Matt Kenseth
  3. Kasey Kahne
