The NASCAR Cup Series power ranking is after Darlington Raceway. This weekend they race the All-Star event at North Wilkesboro Speedway.
The NASCAR Cup Series regular season has officially hit its halfway point with the completion of the Goodyear 400 at Darlington. Even in just 13 races, the season has already seen more than its share of unexpected twists and turns, and Darlington added more fuel to that fire. Top contenders Kyle Larson, Martin Truex Jr., and Ross Chastain were all taken out of contention in final-stage incidents, and instead, William Byron drove through and grabbed his third win of the season, becoming the first driver to do so this year. The win for Byron means there are no changes at the top spot, but the rest of the list sees some shake-ups this week as we head into the All-Star break.
