Top 25 National Sprint Car Poll - Week 7

Dewease went 2-for-2 with the ASCoC in PA this weekend

It was another wet weekend across the country as only seven of the scheduled eighteen 'Winged 410' Sprint Car races in the country were completed. The remainder were all lost due to rain. Keep tracks in your prayers once again this weekend as the weather doesn't look to promising, including some reports calling for snow across OH/PA! This week, our voters' ballots this week take into consideration all of the races that were contested from April 28th-30th.

David Gravel still holds the No. 1 spot in our Top 25 National Sprint Car Poll. Donny Schatz surrendered a lead in this weekend's World of Outlaws event, but he still remains No. 2 in our poll and just a few tallies back from the top spot. Not changing from last week, Brad Sweet, Jason Johnson and Brian Brown still round the top five.

Lance Dewease set a record for this poll as he moved ahead fourteen spots to occupy the No. 7 position. He was too much to handle for the All Stars this past weekend, as he picked up the win at Williams Grove Speedway before beating them again on Saturday at Port Royal Speedway in dominating fashion.

Also a first in this poll's one-year history, no drivers dropped out of the rankings from last week.

Our panel of voting members includes the following:
Anthony Corini, Blake Anderson, Brian Liskai, Bobby Gerould, Kyle Symons, Mike Leone, Mike Mallett, Shawn Miller, Tony Bokhoven and Tyler Beichner.
