Monday Night Racing Pro Series Championship Power Rankings

Three of the four Championship Four contenders were included in the Preseason Power Rankings. Collin Fern, the one not included, quickly shocked the league with his week two victory at Las Vegas. Coincidentally, a week after David Schildhouse won the season-opener at Daytona.

With one race left to determine a champion in the Monday Night Racing Pro Series presented by Rowdy Energy, here is your Championship Four Power Rankings:

  1. Collin Fern / –

Fern was not included in the Preseason Power Rankings due to the fact I was uncertain how he would perform in his rookie MNR Pro Series season. Well, he exceeded all expectations and now finds himself with the most momentum heading into the championship finale. Fern has an average finish of 6.2 through the playoffs; the best amongst the Championship Four contenders.

  1. Adam Cabot / +1

In the regular season finale, Cabot found himself below the cutline and needed a win to advance. Well, Cabot won that race and now is in a position to battle for a championship for the second consecutive season. Throughout the playoffs, Cabot has been consistently one of the best drivers and I think he will be one to beat on Monday night. He is my pick to take home the hardware and the check at Auto Club Speedway.

  1. David Schildhouse / -1

When looking at the regular season, it looked like it was David Schildhouse’s championship to lose. But, in recent weeks, both Fern and Cabot have stepped up big time. While his Championship Four competitors have each found victory lane in the past six races, Schildhouse hasn’t scored a victory since the fifth race of the season at Phoenix Raceway. An MNR championship is looking like a stretch for Schildhouse unless he really comes out strong on Monday.

  1. Ryan Vargas / –

Going into the Round of Seven finale at Nashville, Vargas was seemingly out of the championship hunt if he didn’t score a win. Fortunately for the NASCAR Xfinity Series driver, he was victorious on Monday night. His biggest weakness going into the championship finale at Auto Club is his inconsistency. If Vargas can run a smooth, clean race, he will be up at the front all night long.

Make sure to tune into the Monday Night Racing Pro Series Championship at 8PM EST on Monday, February 7th.
