Recent Power Rankings

We could base the recent power rankings simply on points in the last four races, and we'd get this result.

This is the same points earned since our first off-week after the fourth race.

(Before we get to that, also notice that Mark Martin is now 13th in points, just 9 points out of 12th. Didn't I predict that happening in my PPR article from last month?
