INDYCAR: Power Rankings (Better Late Than Never Edition)

Often imitated, never duplicated....and NEVER not on fire.

Sorry for the late posting of Power Rankings.  I've been a bit busy.

I GUESS I can take time off of my schedule of acting as a photographer, a bad luck charm, and being generally lazy to post Power Rankings once again.

Here goes myself mailing it in tonight....BTW:  Winner of the 500 will get an automatic jump to P1 in the next rankings list.  It doesn't matter whether or not they're part-timers, they go to the top.

 

(The Grid posted after the jump)

 

THE GRID

 

1.  Will Power

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking: #2 (+1)

His dragon to slay is winning on an oval.  Winning this one would be unbeatable and you could pencil him in for the 2011 series title.

 

2.  Dario Franchitti

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking: #1 (-1)

I think many people were convinced he'll win the title again after he posted a 4th place finish despite hitting a tire barrier in Brazil.  Nothing stops this man.

 

3.  Oriol Servia

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #3 (no change)

So explain to me again WHY was he unemployed….

 

4.  Ryan Briscoe

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #11 (+7)

Has looked quite impressive this year when nobody is wrecking into him.

 

5.  Alex Tagliani

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #4 (-1)

He has looked very stout during the Month of May.  Not surprised with his precision at driving considering his precision with his goatee.

 

6.  Tony Kanaan

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #5 (-1)

Just by judging Mike Conway's lap times this month you'd think he'd be a lot less stressed entering Time Trials this year.  He doesn't have to drive that sled again.

 

7.  Simona De Silvestro

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #6 (-1)

Dammit.

 

8.  Vitor Meira

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #7 (-1)

I'm enjoying AJ Foyt's retro colors this year.  They've made the Crapwagon....less ugly.

 

9.  Scott Dixon

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #8 (-1)

Okay, with his planking (among other things he's done/said this year) Scott Dixon is no longer the android everybody (including myself) thought he was.

 

10.  Mike Conway

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #9 (-1)

Yep, looks like he inherited Tony Kanaan's car from last year.  Uh-oh.

 

11.  James Hinchcliffe

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking: #13 (+2)

The Mayor of Hinchtown becomes the Mayor of Terrible Haute.  After going to school for four years in that town I stand by my words.

 

12.  Justin Wilson

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #14 (+2)

No more road courses....so no more advancement until the next stint.

 

13.  JR Hildebrand

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #15 (+2)

Ovals.  It's Panther Racing's time to shine.

 

14.  Graham Rahal

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  unranked

Okay, let's see how this team's relationship with Ganassi really works out....

 

15.  Takuma Sato

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  unranked

He was so close to winning in Brazil.  Not the first time this year Jimmy Vasser has screwed a driver out of a good ride.

 

DNQ (Bumped from the field)

 

Danica Patrick

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  #10

By judging the lap times this month....it might NOT have been her fault.  Still shouldn't have said it.

 

Marco Andretti

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  unranked

An Andretti winning the Centennial would stop the world on its axis.

 

Rafa Matos

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking: #12

I can only imagine the imprints left behind by the treaded tires....

 

EJ Viso

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  unranked

He's made it this far without walling it....oops, probably jinxed him.

 

Helio Castroneves

Endplate_medium_medium

Previous Ranking:  unranked

Pole Position.  228 average.  Bank it.
