Sweet, Bacon, Sanders & Kofoid Lead the Way in Open Wheel Power Rankings!

Lonnie Wheatley, BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (April 22, 2021) – While Buddy Kofoid maintains his lead in the Midget portion, the balance of the Open Wheel Power Rankings have seen a shakeup in the past several weeks with Brad Sweet, Brady Bacon and Justin Grant each climbing to the top of their respective divisions.

A look at the top 40 in each is as follows…

STIDA Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings

A four-race win streak with the World of Outlaws during the final week of March and first week of April was enough for Brad Sweet to surge to the top of the STIDA Winged 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings.

Landing the top spot in 410 Sprint Car Power Rankings for the first time in 2019 before settling for second last year behind brother-in-law Kyle Larson, “The Big Cat” has posted a handful of wins on the season thus far to hold a 43-point advantage over Donny Schatz.  Along with Sweet and Logan Schuchart, Schatz is just one of three drivers to post double-digit top-five finishes so far in 2021.

Carson Macedo has climbed from fifth into third, taking the position by one point over Schuchart with a strong past month moving current All Star Circuit of Champions points leader Justin Peck from 11th to fifth.  The balance of the current top ten currently includes Sheldon Haudenschild, Aaron Reutzel, David Gravel, Cory Eliason and Anthony Macri.
