Schatz topped the inaugural version of the STIDA Power Rankings in 2013 and then put posted 26 wins last year to take the top spot again by 257 points.

Posse rep Hodnett has already reached double digits in the win column with ten triumphs, holding the second ranking by 19 points over Kerry Madsen with Shane Stewart and All Star point leader Dale Blaney also among the top five.
