Mid-Week Rankings: Kansas I, 2014

Here are my early driver rankings for this week’s NASCAR Sprint Cup race at Kansas. 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;
  • the loop data for the past four races at Kansas;
  • the loop data for the past seven races at other tracks in the Large Ovals track group (i.e., MichiganKentuckyFontanaCharlotteTexasAtlanta and Chicagoland);
  • the practice and qualifying data for the past four races at Kansas; and
  • the practice and qualifying data for past seven races at the aforementioned Large Ovals.

The results:

  1. Matt Kenseth
  2. Jimmie Johnson
  3. Joey Logano
