    Matt Willis

    The first round of my annual NASCAR Bracket of Massive Significance was nothing if not mad. Bristol wrecking and bad luck led to such upsets as Bobby Labonte over Jeff Gordon, Brian Vickers over Jimmie Johnson, and David Gilliland over Carl Edwards...

    Matt Willis

    It may be a whole new Bristol, with side-by-side racing replacing the single-groove, knock-'em-out-of-the-way style that we all grew up with, but we saw one very familiar sight Sunday: the Blue Deuce rolling into Victory Lane. We also saw one gettin...

    Matt Willis

    What a great time to be a sports fan! NASCAR is in full swing, but right now, it gets overshadowed by the NCAA tournament. But why let the college hoops fans have all the fun and enjoyment that brackets can bring? For the past few years, I've had ...

  4. NASCAR - Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart take control in Chase

    Matt Willis

    To those sitting around me in Bristol, Conn., today, it might appear that I'm struggling with this blog, fighting to find the perfect word to keep my readers spellbound. Actually, I'm just hanging out at work because I'm still without heat and power...

  5. NASCAR - Brad Keselowski proving new season means new results

    Matt Willis

    I decided to ride out the Saturday night portion of Hurricane Irene (my thoughts and prayers go out to everyone affected) at ESPN, watching the Bristol race with ESPN NASCAR analyst Ricky Craven. As the race played out and Brad Keselowski took the ...

    Matt Willis

    The debate rages on for the new Bristol versus the old Bristol. Well, let me step in and play peacemaker by telling you the new Bristol is still pretty wild. For one, you have the side-by-side racing replacing the previous style, in which if you wer...

  7. Kyle Busch, Showdown favorite

    Matt Willis

    Kyle Busch is simply dominant at Bristol. And with the Sprint Summer Showdown competition winding down, he's primed to have an extra million dollars in his firesuit.

    Matt Willis

    Driving in to work Monday morning, I was listening to some NASCAR talk radio, and they made the thought-provoking point that road-course racing is the new Bristol. They have a point. Bristol used to be about one-lane racing, and if you were in the p...

  9. Jeff Byrd 500: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching

    Matt Willis

    There's never any shortage of storylines coming out of Bristol. It's one thing you can always count on, and an excellent reason why we need more short tracks, or just a dozen more Bristols, on the schedule. There's still a lot of chatter about the ...

  10. Jeff Byrd 500: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching

    Matt Willis

    Did everyone enjoy the weekend off? I enjoyed a quick breather, got home to Upstate New York, caught a Jack Russell Terrier puppy that had gotten loose, participated in a fundraiser trivia night, among other things. Strangely, the final question of ...

  12. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching after Bristol

    Matt Willis

    Hello there, friends. I don't know how your weekend went, but I bet it wasn't nearly as good as Kyle Busch's. I tend to stay topical in this blog, except when I kind of mentally drift off and keep typing, ignoring the fact that this is supposed to b...

  13. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching for Bristol

    Matt Willis

    It occurred to me recently that these blog thingies have a word limit, and I'm regularly going over my word limit, straining the very confines of the Internet. Words I can't waste talking about such irrelevant topics as department stores where you ...

  15. Crunching NASCAR Sprint Cup numbers after the Food City 500

    Matt Willis

    Much like a heroic character in a western, this past weekend the rear wing rode off into the sunset, never to be seen again. Maybe the wing wasn't quite a hero, not the John Wayne-type, but a Bristol race isn't a bad way to go out. It was a fitting ...

    Matt Willis

    What's up, NASCAR audience? Enjoy the off week? Hey, put that bracket down and pay attention! Actually, who am I kidding? I love the brackets. I actually had to fight the urge to fill one out for the NIT. Did you have Jacksonville over Arizona Stat...
