1: Logan Clampitt (+2)

After leading a chunk of laps at Kansas, winning the All-Star exhibition race, and dominating much of the Charlotte race, it‘s clear Logan Clampitt is on a tear. It‘s #ClampNation‘s time.

2: Ray Alfalla (–)

Points leader Ray Alfalla heads into Michigan — a track where he‘s won twice — with a 39-point lead over Keegan Leahy. It‘ll be business as usual for Slip Angle Motorsports in the Irish Hills.

3: Keegan Leahy (-2)

Keegan Leahy started on the front row and led laps in Charlotte, but the Phenom Racing Team driver‘s run went south after a crash in the late stages of the race. We fully expect the Canadian to rebound in Michigan.

4: Nickolas Shelton (+4)

After we watched him trend upward at 1.5-mile tracks in 2018, our Race 7 Power Rankings wisely predicted a strong run from Nick Shelton at Charlotte. Sure enough, he won the darn race. Thanks for making us look good, Mr. Shelton.

5: Bobby Zalenski (+2)

Bobby Zalenski led laps and finished fourth at Charlotte, enough to bump him to third in the points standings. Believe it or not, Charlotte marked Zalenski‘s first top-five finish of 2018.

6: Matt Bussa (+1)

Still searching for his first victory of 2018, Matt Bussa is on the right track after scoring a season-high third-place finish at Charlotte.

7: Michael Conti (-1)

Michael Conti didn‘t have a stellar race at Charlotte, finishing outside the top 20 for the second race in a row, but he is the defending winner at Michigan. It‘s worth keeping an eye on the 2014 champ.

8: Ryan Luza (-3)

Where in the world is Ryan Michael Luza? After winning two races early in the season, the defending series champion was a no-show for the second consecutive race. When he‘s back, we expect he‘ll pick up where he left off — a weekly threat for victories.

9: Taylor Hurst (NR)

If Lockdown Racing‘s Taylor Hurst could lock down some consistency, expect some good things. Hurst has climbed to eighth in the standings following two consecutive top-dozen finishes — and finished fourth and sixth in the last two series races at Michigan.

10: Christian Challiner (-5)

Great Britain‘s Christian Challiner started on the pole at Charlotte, but fell apart quickly after leading the opening laps, finishing 25th. He‘ll look to regroup in Michigan, where the Dynamic Autosports driver finished 12th last year.

It was his sixth career pole and second of the season. Sonoma Pole Winners | All-Time Pole Winners “I always qualify good here for some reason, but the races always seems to be a struggle,” said Larson, who is looking for both his first win of the season and first career at Sonoma. “I spent some time in the simulator and feel like I learned some things there. I thought we had a good practice yesterday and the last run was pretty decent. So, it would be nice to get a win here. It would be cool. These guys have worked so hard all year long on these new Camaros. Thanks to Hendrick for all the power they give. It’s really smooth here at So..
