Robby Gordon still leads the FLOPPER standings

Taking a quick look at the bottom end of 2009 performance, we update our FLOPPER standings. We saw strong performances from David Stremme, Paul Menard, and Robby Gordon. They finished 14th, 15th, and 16th at Richmond. Amazing stuff to have all three of them finish in the top 20. It's like nobody wants to win this FLOPPER this year. David Ragan's 33th place is more like it. He's still gunning for it, as he got 51 points closer to Robby Gordon.

Even Bobby Labonte was able to find a new ride and get a lead lap 18th place finish. It's important that he found a ride for those 7 races he lost in the 96 car. Remember that you need to compete in every race to be FLOPPER eligible. One missed race and you're out.

The big loser was Kevin Harvick, whose second place at Richmond has dropped him off the first page of these standings. Let's see if he can race his way back into contention later this season.
