Technically, "6th" place would be 9th place, as there were four people tied for fifth. The other rankings would change accordingly as well ...

How about drivers who never finished last?

Brock Beard said...

@EclipseProjectFilms I'm not sure how long that list would go, to be honest - but I can confirm as of the date of this post that it includes Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Kasey Kahne, and Brad Keselowski.
