SPEED Weekly Top 20 Driver Ranking

UPDATE A reader writes, Dear AutoRacing1.com, How does this work? More of a passing poll for promoting amusement than a credible rating system, SPEEDTV’s Driver Ranking System is a joke.

Never-won-a-race Danica Patrick one slot behind 4-time Champ Car Champion and now F1 driver Sebastien Bourdais and AHEAD of F1-phenom Lewis Hamilton? Amusing. There is one race in the books and Ed Carpenter finished in front of Danica and he is not listed? August Bodi
