Below are the updated rankings after last weekend. Brent Marks continues to lead the way in the STLRacing.com Sprint Car Rankings. Marks may not have won last weekend, was decent at both I-70 and Knoxville. Maybe he was doing some testing last Saturday night at Knoxville getting ready for the Nationals next week. Brad Sweet took over the second sport in the Rankings over Carson Macedo. The #41 has been off a little lately but should bounce back with Pevely and Knoxville next up. Carson won the World of Outlaw show earlier in the year. Sweet on the other hand continues to lead the World of Outlaw point standings but David Gravel is starting to flex some muscle. He picked up another win over the weekend at Weedsport and is always solid at Pevely and is definitely at favorite at Knoxville. Anthony Macri moved up in the rankings after picking up his first win outside the state of Pennsylvania. The Posse driver won the Rudeen race after a fierce battle with Rico Abreu. The win was worth $26,000 for the #39m. Donny Schatz is another one who is getting hot at the right time. He won last night at Weedsport the 2nd night of the World of Outlaw double header. The most popular win last week had to be the thriller at Knoxville. The event drew 55 sprint cars and the All-Stars did not disappoint and it was Rico passing Kerry Madsen with just a couple of laps to go at the checkers. Knoxville had a huge crowd, the track was awesome, and the atmosphere was electric. Rico has been very fast this year since working with his crew chief Ricky Warner.
