    Default CMS-TXL Power Rankings - after Mid-Ohio

    CMS-TXL Sports Car Series Power Rankings
    2019 S1 - 7 of 9 Races Completed


    After the twilight race at Mid-Ohio, there's been some movement in the Power Rankings...and while provisionals can hurt, this list is more about exceptional weeks and seasons, and giving credit where it's due.

    So now, I give to you, the updated Power Rankings!! Let the debates begin!!


    GTE-Pro Class

    At Mid-Ohio, the turnout for this class was low for the second race in a row, but that didn't prevent a duel to the checkers up front, and a change in the rankings:

    1. Leif Peterson - Holding onto the top spot, Leif had a second place finish, but continues to finish on the podium. With a second place finish, his average finish this season is now 2.7!! He has a firm hold at the top of the points standings as well, but it's not over yet!

    2. Clark Archer - With another win at Mid-Ohio, his third of the season, Clark moves up into second in the rankings this week. With his average finish now a class best 2.5, missing one race has hurt his chances for taking the championship. However, there's racing left on the schedule, and the title hasn't been decided yet!

    3. Jason Lundy - With his third podium finish in a row this past week, Jason has been moving up the points week after week, which many of us are not surprised to see. Don't be surprised to see Jason snag a win before this season is over.


    GT3-Gents Class

    Like the Pro Class, this division saw a dramatic decrease in entrants at Mid-Ohio, but you can bet on seeing that number climb when we get to Watkins Glen this week. This division has averaged 8.4 drivers per start so far this season.

    1. Paul Hamilton - Because of yet another podium finish at Mid-Ohio (his 6th out of 7 races this season!), Paul hangs on to the top spot in our rankings and in the points. With two races left, he almost has the points title in hand, and just needs to keep doing what he has done all season...be consistent.

    2. Jay Dargert - Taking the win at Mid-Ohio, Jay moves up to second in our Power Rankings this week, and his overall average finish for the season is 4.8, with two wins and three podiums out of 5 races he has started. I'll make the prediction now, Mr. Dargert will take the win at Watkins Glen this week based on his past record there!

    3. Randy Drumhiller - Randy continues to improve, and moves up a spot in the Power Rankings this week, primarily from his consistency. Starting the season with back to back podiums, Randy has been just off the bottom step in his other four races, and will be tough at the Glen!

    4. Anthony James - Despite missing this week's race, AJ's season and consistency, particularly his 3-race win streak of recent, keeps him firmly cemented in the Top 5.

    5. Scott Burke - With a second place finish at Mid-Ohio, and a season average finish of 2.75 in 4 races (Taking the win in the season opener at Daytona!), Scott's a front-runner whose recent podiums pulled him into the Power Rankings this week.


    GTE-AM Class

    Continuing to be the largest class starting the race each week, this division is averaging just over 14 drivers starting each week. That means a bad night hurts just a little more, and a good night feels great.

    1. Kris Hudson - After a tough night at Mid-Ohio, where an ill-handling car took him off track and eventually to a 6th place finish, Kris has seen his points lead over Peter close a little, and his season average finish fall to 3.0

    2. Drew Lidkea - New to the Power Rankings this week, Drew took his first win of the season at Mid-Ohio and moved up in the points standings to 3rd, even after missing the season opening race at Daytona, and tough outings at Road America and Sebring. But with a win and two second place finishes this season, Drew has proven to be a front runner.

    3. Peter Hebron - After starting up front, Peter brought his ride home in second place for yet another podium this season. His average finish is now 4.6, but he has found consistency as of late and be out front at Watkins Glen. Peter brings experience each week, and with the chase for the Championship far from over I would expect to see him out front again.

    4. Dion Smith - Each week, Dion is always at the top of the speed chart, but hasn't had the luck that goes with racing at times. His third place finish at Mid-Ohio was his second podium of the season, and is one of six drivers to make all 7 races so far this season. Hopefully the bad luck is gone, which is bad news for the rest of the division.

    5. Joey Tungale - After back to back podiums in previous events, Joey finished inside the Top 10 at Mid-Ohio on a night that was tough for all. His recent consistency has kept him inside the Top 5 of the Power Rankings this week, and is yet another with the speed to finish on the podium each race.


    Usually I stop at the Top 5, but I want to note 6-10 this week for the AM class:

    6. Jay Freels - I would expect Jay to rebound at the familiar Watkins Glen circuit this week, and put this past week's race in the mirror.

    7. Larry Ford - With his Top 5 finish in class at Mid-Ohio, Larry has averaged a finishing position of 6.7 in six races this season.

    8. David Anderson - Another driver who has made all 7 races this season, his racecraft and patience moves him up through the field nearly every race!

    9. David Slee - Dave is one of out long time members that shows up ready to race every week, and has had an up and down season overall.

    10. Samuel Scott - With a win and a 3 podiums out of 5 races this season, Sam is another driver that has the speed to take another win.

    I just enjoyed Sebring race week with 4 of the above-mentioned as well as others from the group. Ask them how it went on the iRacing simulator down on the midway!
