NASCAR Power Rankings

Road racing is not boring. To the contrary, the Sprint Cup race at Infineon Raceway on Sunday was exhilarating, and not just because of the cliffhanger ending and gut-wrenching stall of would-be first-time winner Marcos Ambrose. Racing was close-quarters, aggressive and interesting. Maybe it is time to add more of these courses to the schedule. Road America? Mid-Ohio? Maybe a nice Talladega-Barber Motorsports Park back-to-back weekender? Have a comment? Send to You can also follow me on Twitter at
