Power Rankings

Power Rankings include six key categories to measure drag racing performance, including elapsed time, reaction time, top speed, incremental times, success rate and red light fouls. These statistics are weighted against class averages to produce race-by-race ratings.

    Elapsed time: Average of a racer's elapsed times. All runs within the top 60 percent of the category are included. 

    Reaction time: Average of a racer's reaction times. All lights quicker than .200 are included. 

    Top speed: Average of a racer's speed. All runs faster than 300 mph in nitro classes, 200 in Pro Stock and 180 in Pro Stock Motorcycle are included. 

    Incremental times: The average of a racer's incremental times (60-foot being one of those increments). 

    Success rate: How often a racer gets to the track quicker than the class average. The class average is based on the best 60 percent of runs because drag racing is always a moving-target sport. 

    Red lights: Leaving before green. We want you to Go On Yello... not red.  

    Last Six Rating: The rating over the last six races. This gives you an idea of what a team has done for you lately. 

    You can see all 15 statistics that make up Power Rankings here. Below are the top 10 racers from the 2018 season. Drivers are sorted by last-six race rating.
