Matt Kenseth jumps back into the No. 1 slot after Kentucky victory.

Jimmie Johnson had the Quaker State 400 at Kentucky Speedway won until he blew a late-race restart and handed the victory to Matt Kenseth. And with that victory, Kenseth moves back to the top slot in FOXSports.com/SPEED.com Power Rankings this week.

Matt Kenseth

0 4 1/9
All race long, Kenseth was fast. When it was winning time, he and crew chief Jason Ratcliff were smart and fast.

Jimmie Johnson

0 1 1/7
Woulda’, coulda’, shoulda’. Johnson led 182 of 267 laps and finished ninth. He can’t do that in the Chase if he wants his six-pack.

3

Kevin Harvick

0 1 1/15
Not a great race for Harvick, but 10th wasn’t bad. He was never a contender, though.

Clint Bowyer

0 - 2/15
Although he’s still looking for his first race victory of the season, Bowyer made the most of the afternoon by finishing third.

Carl Edwards

0 4 1/19
After leading the first 31 laps, Edwards basically was never a factor afterwards and slumped to finish 21st.

Dale Earnhardt Jr.

0 1 1/14
Junior won the pole, but an errant tire carcass from Denny Hamlin’s car bent his splitter and ended his chances at victory.

Greg Biffle

0 1 4/18
After three great weeks, Biffle came crashing back to reality when he was collateral damage in the Brad Keselowski crash.
