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

  • The loop data for the past 15 Sprint Cup races (excluding¬†Daytona, Sonoma, Watkins Glen and Talladega);
  • the loop data for the past four races;
  • the loop data for the past four races at Texas;
  • the loop data for the past eight races at the other tracks in the Large Ovals track group (i.e., Fontana, Charlotte, Atlanta, Kansas, Chicago, Michigan and Kentucky);
  • the practice and qualifying data for the past four races at Texas; and
  • the practice and qualifying data for past eight races at the aforementioned Large Ovals.

The results:

  1. Jeff Gordon
