Fan submission of the week: Don't see your driver in the power rankings? Want to make a case for why we're missing the boat? E-mail Tom Bowles at tbowles81@yahoo.com and tell us why your driver should be included. We'll pick one lucky fan who sticks up for his or her favorite and include their rant in the rankings each week!

This Week's Submission: Yankee Granny, Location unknown:

Come on, Tom; show Junior some love and put him in the rankings! He ran an almost flawless race at Martinsville, finished second, walked away from Gordon, Edwards, etc at the end, and might have caught J.J. if it had been a longer run [at the finish]. He also didn't fight with his crew chief (who set the car up beautifully all race long) and ran the conservative smart kind of a race that produces winners! If he runs like this the rest of the year, you will have to put him in! (Note: Earnhardt, Jr. finished 11th at Atlanta this Sunday, but still didn't make it on our list).
