Update: Nemechek Edged Blaney For Rear Wing Lead at Bristol

For those of you wondering this off-weekend, Joe Nemechek leads the LASTCAR rankings for the 93 NASCAR Sprint Cup races run with the rear wing on the Car of Tomorrow from March 25, 2007 through March 21, 2010. Nemechek came into last month's Food City 500 at Bristol tied with Dave Blaney with 9 last-place finishes in a rear-wing car, then fell out of the race 10 laps before Blaney to score his 10th finish. The complete rankings compiled from those 93 races are as follows:

1st) Joe Nemechek (10)

2nd) Dave Blaney (9)

3rd) Tony Raines (5)

4th) A.J. Allmendinger (4)

5th) Aric Almirola, Mike Bliss, Patrick Carpentier, Bobby Labonte (3)

6th) Greg Biffle, Jeff Burton, Kyle Busch, David Gilliland, Robby Gordon, Denny Hamlin, Sterling Marlin, Michael McDowell, Ryan Newman, Reed Sorenson, Martin Truex, Jr., Brian Vickers, Michael Waltrip (2)

7th) Marcos Ambrose, Tony Ave, Todd Bodine, Ward Burton, Kurt Busch, Dale Earnhardt, Jr., Dario Franchitti, Jeff Gordon, Sam Hornish, Jr., Dale Jarrett, P.J. Jones, Matt Kenseth, Travis Kvapil, Joey Logano, Mark Martin, Jamie McMurray, Juan Pablo Montoya, Max Papis, Kyle Petty, Scott Riggs, Elliott Sadler, Brian Simo, Mike Skinner, David Stremme, Tony Stewart, Kenny Wallace, Mike Wallace (1)

As NASCAR continues to run the Car of Tomorrow platform with the rear spoiler, I will continue to update these rankings at this link, which can also be viewed under the "Current Last-Place Rankings" menu on the right side of this page. Michael McDowell's last-place finish at Martinsville has already been added.
