As the series moves to Talladega Superspeedway this weekend, here is how I see the top ten drivers at the moment:

Larson has won at two tracks—Richmond and Martinsville—that are not his best. Talladega isn't either. Give him the trophy. I kid. Kinda.

1. Kyle Larson

Bowman finished 11th at Martinsville but ran in the top 12 most of the day.

2. Alex Bowman

After practicing well, Byron struggled at Martinsville. He has one top-13 finish and three bottom-20 finishes in the five races since his back-to-back wins.

3. William Byron

Bell won Martinsville in October but didn't factor Sunday. He leads the series standings and knows that playoff points could help him avoid must-win playoff elimination races.

4. Christopher Bell

After a speeding penalty, Truex finished third at Martinsville, his first top-five of the season.

5. Martin Truex Jr.

Harvick was in position to win at Martinsville until the lug nut came off during a pit stop.

6. Kevin Harvick

Chastain improved from 34th to 13th at Martinsville. It wasn't his best day, especially at his career high point.

7. Ross Chastain

Reddick finished top-five in the first two stages at Martinsville but lost 12 laps in the final green-flag run. He's sixth in driver points and fast.

8. Tyler Reddick

Busch's 21st finish at Martinsville was his third consecutive 14th or worse finish.

9. Kyle Busch

Logano spent most of Martinsville in the 20s, but strategy, grit, and a good car helped him finish second. He may drop in the rankings without strategy and grit.

10. Joey Logano
