Infinity Shocks Non-Wing 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings – Top 40 (Through July 24):

Denied victory lane during a Sprintweek that offered up seven different winners in as many races, consistency proved to be key for Brady Bacon to take the title and hold on to the lead in Infinity Shocks Non-Wing 410 Power Rankings.

With 24 top-fives among 30 top-ten feature finishes, Bacon holds the top spot by 43 points over Kevin Thomas, Jr. KT climbed one position past Bryan Clauson, whose non-wing 410 starts are at just 24 in his Circular Insanity Tour.

Robert Ballou, who topped last year’s Infinity Shocks Non-Wing 410 Power Rankings, jumped a pair of positions to fourth with Thomas Meseraull rounding out the top five.

The balance of the current top ten includes Dave Darland, C.J. Leary, Chris Windom, Chase Stockon and Brady Short.
