Round 10 Power Rankings: Teams

Here are the power rankings following round ten at Toronto. Number next to team represents change in rankings based off of last week's rankings, and new this week, the three digit number next to the "change in position" is average points per driver so far in the 9 races for that team, these exclude one-offs:

Biggest Mover: AJ Foyt Enterprises (+2)
Biggest Loser: Ed Carpenter Racing (-4)



1. Andretti Autosport +1  263.3
Three in a row. Fantastic stuff by this great group. Can they take the championship? FYI: Take away Marco, and their average points between Hinch and RHR would be 301.5 points.

2. Team Pesnke -1  269
A rare bad weekend by Penske. Power got caught out by a yellow, Briscoe did nothing, and Helio finished P6. Now they are the hunter and not the hunted.

3. Schmidt Hamilton Racing 0  264
Pagenaud had a good race going until the Newgarden incident. But Simon still managed to beat three of the four Ganassi cars.

4. Chip Ganassi Racing 0  230
Raise your hand if you had Charlie Kimball leading the way for Ganassi.

5. Panther Dreyer and Reinbold Racing 0  207
A great weekend for the team with Oriol getting 5th and JR getting 7th. That is the type of results I expect to see from them more often.

6. KV Racing 0  207.3
Good result for TK, good result going for Barrichello before a spin, and a mechanical issue for Viso. Dare I say, another F going KV's way for the race? *cough Cavin cough*

7. Bryan Herta Autosport 0 162
The day BHA and Tags gets luck to fall their way is the day the will finally breakthrough.

8. Dale Coyne Racing 0 175
Good result for Jakes, but it was a shame to see Wilson go out as he had a winning car.

9. Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing +1  143
Young Newgarden again proving that the team can hang with the best of them, but an incident that could have been avoided costs him a podium.

10. Rahal Letterman Racing +1  176
Sato gets a good result in a P9. He's now going back to Edmonton where he got the pole last year.

11. AJ Foyt Enterprises +2  172
P3 for Conway right after I write my negative blog on them..... Oh the irony.... Good for the team.

12. Dragon Racing 0  102.5
Bourdais got hosed, but he'll be up there at Edmonton.

13. Ed Carpenter Racing -4  163
Maybe a little harsh on the ranking, but this is in preparation for the next four road courses where Ed will do subpar.

14. HVM Racing 0  123
Those upgrades sure were great....


Let me know what you think.
