Frontstretch NASCAR Power Rankings: Top 15 After the 2010 Air Guard 400 at Richmond

The anti-climactic final moments of the Race to the Chase left a feeling in NASCAR fans’ mouths like they’d kissed their sister Saturday night.

The new Bristol provided a lot of excitement over the weekend, but the traditional bump-and-run found itself replaced by another classic maneuver: the slide job.
