Three earned automatic berths. Four are gone. And the Chase for the Sprint Cup Championship is down to 12 drivers with chance to win this year's title.

Brad Keselowski, Joey Logano, and most recently Jeff Gordon have all earned a spot into the Contender Round via the victory, with Jimmie Johnson, Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, Kasey Kahne, Carl Edwards, Ryan Newman, Denny Hamlin, Matt Kenseth, and Dale Earnhardt Jr. all joining the party. The Chase said goodbye to A.J. Allmendinger, Kurt Busch, Greg Biffle, and Aric Almirola.

But everyone is still very much alive when it comes to the Magic Mile Power Rankings. Gordon's win on Sunday at Dover International Speedway should get him out of the MMPR basement, but was it enough for him to climb past Bad Brad?

MMPR format:
Win - 10 points
Top-5 - 5 points
Top-10 - 3 points
Most Laps Led - 2 points
Pole - 1 point
21-30 - Minus-1
31-40 - Minus-3
41-43 - Minus-5

*The most recent five races are counted.

Here's a look at the MMPR (last five weeks' point total in parentheses) heading into the first race in the Contender Round at Kansas Speedway on Sunday:

1. Brad Keselowski (29 points) - Who says the drivers with automatic bids into the next round have no reason to go hard? Bad Brad finished the first three races in the Chase with an average finish of 3.33. That's just stupid-good.
Previous ranking: First, --

2. Kevin Harvick (25 points) -Two poles, 618 laps led, and three top-fives in his last five races has Harvick looking every bit the contender pundits thought he'd be before the Chase started.
Previous ranking: Third, --

3. Joey Logano (23 points) - Three straight top-fives and a win has Sliced Bread looking like the favorite to advance all the way to the final four.
Previous ranking: Second, --

4. Jeff Gordon (19 points) - He hasn't missed a beat since the end of the regular season. And had it not been for a blown tire at the Magic Mile, Gordon might have a pair of wins heading into Round 2.
Previous ranking: Seventh, +3

5. Jimmie Johnson (18 points) - A fifth and a third in his last two weeks - yeah, the 48 Team is fine.
Previous ranking: Fourth, -1

6. Kyle Larson (16 points) - Third at Chicago, second at New Hampshire, and sixth at Dover. Chasers should probably be thankful this kid isn't in the mix because he'd probably win the whole thing.
Previous ranking: Sixth, --

7. Jamie McMurray (12 points) - If only this guy could figure out how to race like this for the first 26 races.
Previous ranking: Fifth, -2

8. Kyle Busch (10 points) - Whether Rowdy is a contender or pretender will be determined this weekend. Kansas has been a sore spot for the 18 Team, but should he conquer those demons on Sunday, there's no reason to believe this could just be the year for Busch.
Previous ranking: NR

9. Ryan Newman (9 points) - Doing just enough to get by doesn't seem like a winning formula, but when a championship comes down to just one race there's reason to believe this team is onto something.
Previous ranking: NR

10. Kasey Kahne (9 points) - Like poker, all he needs is a chip and chair. Double K is still very much alive in this thing.
Previous ranking: NR

Wave Around: Matt Kenseth - Another strong run by Kenseth on Sunday, but still no wins yet this season. Is it possible a winless driver could actually still win the championship?
