Sony Cup Series Power Rankings -- Week 8

Following the Round of Cleveland

1. Dom Caps (--) - This is really the 2nd time Dom Caps has finished outside the Top 10 in any races and he's won half the races run so far this year. Despite the Turn 1 mayhem and having to pit an extra time from everyone else... Caps rebounded to finish 22nd at Cleveland. He passed Baskinger in points but was passed by Turner in points. Caps will continue to fight to take back the point lead next race.


2. Jesse Turner (+1) - Turner has been so good all year. Ever since his bad luck in the DAYTONA 500... Turner has clicked off Top 10's in every race so far! 7 consecutive Top 10 finishes is incredible and for all the different tracks we have went to and especially last week's race in the rain it's amazing to see what this team is able to do under any circumstances. Turner is now the new point leader!


3. Jake Baskinger (-1) - After getting completely whipped out in the first corner on the first lap and running into multiple issues because of it... Baskinger limped it home for his worst finish of the season being 36th. Baskinger dropped from the point lead to 3rd in points and trails his teammate 15 points back. He will be looking for redemption after bad luck completely took him out of the point lead.


4. D.J. Kurtis (+1) - D.J. Kurtis was the odds on favorite to win at Cleveland considering he won there in 2017 and also won 3 consecutive races on the road courses last year! Kurtis led 20 of the 32 laps to win the race and move up the order in points! His inconsistent season just turned a corner in Cleveland and will be looking to add another win and make it back to back victories at a track he won at back in 2016 as last week's winner heads to Pocono with all the momentum in the world.


5. Luke Martin (+1) - News coming in after Cleveland from Mace Enterprises showed that Luke Martin will continue driving for Mace Enterprises as he moves over to replace Eric Demax. Martin finished 2nd at Cleveland to Kurtis out in the rain. The finish was Martin's best of the year and was his 4th Top 5 in 6 races! The runner-up place finish was good enough to move Martin to 10th in points despite missing 2 races this year sitting with a good enough shot to a title threat for the year.


6. Matthew Rodriguez (-2) - A 16th place finish at Cleveland was actually pretty disappointing for Matthew Rodriguez as he had high hopes for this race but was threw off by the rain race and strategy gone wrong. A race that threw many people for a loop, Rodriguez will look for better luck at Pocono where he finished very well in 2016.


7. Cody Llamas (--) - Llamas had a strategy at Cleveland that was bound to work but much like his luck all year he's found nothing but bad luck. The plan didn't pay off. Llamas fell to a disappointing 15th despite leading 7 laps. 


8. Jeffery Lynn (+5) - This may come as a surprise but as of late it seems like Jeffery Lynn has really picked the pace up. Since his win at Springfield, Lynn has clicked off back to back Top 10 finishes since his win at Springfield! Lynn has picked up a ton of speed and momentum since his win and is climbing the ladder. Jeffery Lynn has went from 34th to 19th in points in just 3 races! His last 3 finishes being 1st, 9th and 4th!


9. Kyle Collins (+6) - Another surpriser on the list however stats in the last couple of races are what brings this driver into the Top 10. When you look at Collins' stats in 2018 it's actually pretty impressive to note that he's Top 15 in points considering the Toyota's have struggled so far in 2018. Collins last 3 races he's finished no worse than Top 15 and he's actually finished Top 20 in 6 of the 8 races so far. Very underrated season so far for Kyle Collins as he comes off his first Top 10 finish of the year with a 9th place finish!


10. Nick Mace (+2) - For Mace this year has been all about consistency and putting together solid finishes. Mace hasn't had the speed to win a race yet this season but he has put together some really solid efforts when nothing bad has happened. Springfield he had a loose lug nut but rebounded for a Top 20 finish and New Hampshire he blew up after being involved in one of the caution flags. Cleveland he wrecked in Turn 1 on lap 1 and had to pit early due to it but he fought all day to finish 11th. It was his 5th Top 15 finish of the season and nearly added his 5th Top 10 of the year with his comeback finish at Cleveland. Mace has climbed his way back to 7th in points.


MOVED IN: Jeffery Lynn, Kyle Collins and Nick Mace
MOVED OUT: Dajon Weeks, Ryan Acosta and Dillon Young
