Kyle Larson reaches top spot in NBC Sports NASCAR Power Rankings

In the latest NASCAR Power Rankings, Kyle Larson has risen to the top spot after winning at Sonoma on Sunday. This marks his third victory of the season and places him in a commanding lead over the rest of the field. Denny Hamlin, who previously held the top position, finished last at Sonoma due to engine trouble and drops out of the top 10 this week.

Chase Elliott had a solid performance at Sonoma, finishing fourth and securing his sixth top-five finish in the last 10 races. Brad Keselowski also put on a strong show, despite finishing 13th at Sonoma and breaking his streak of top-three results. Tyler Reddick won a stage and finished eighth at Sonoma, continuing his impressive run of top-10 finishes. Christopher Bell also had a good outing, securing a ninth-place finish and maintaining his momentum in recent races.

However, not all drivers fared as well as others. William Byron struggled at Sonoma, finishing 30th due to tire issues and getting caught up in an incident. Ross Chastain had a better showing than he did last week, finishing fifth and earning his second top-10 finish in three races. Alex Bowman also improved from his previous poor performance, finishing 15th after two consecutive races outside the top 10. Ty Gibbs had another rough day on track, hitting the Turn 11 wall at Sonoma and finishing 37th after placing 11th or better in his previous three races. Martin Truex Jr., who had been consistently high up in the rankings recently, dropped out entirely this week due to an unknown reason.
