  3. NASCAR - Is AJ Allmendinger the the Daytona 500 pick?

    Matt Willis

    The Daytona 500 can be described with several words, words like prestigious, legendary and unpredictable. Unfortunately for me, as a stats-minded blogger, the unpredictable part doesn't bode well for what I do, which is trying to find stats and tren...

    Matt Willis

    What an odd NASCAR season it has been. We've had first-time winners in the two biggest races of the year, Trevor Bayne in the Daytona 500 and Regan Smith in the Southern 500. The third "crown jewel" race, last week's 600-miler at Charlotte, saw a la...

  5. Subway Fresh Fit 500: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching

    Matt Willis

    Let's all take a deep breath -- we're getting back to normal. I love the Daytona 500. The prestige, the excitement, the tight pack racing and the occasional phenomenal stories it produces, such as 20-year-old Trevor Bayne winning a much-needed race ...

  6. Daytona 500: NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching

    Matt Willis

    My first Daytona 500 (technically Daytona 520) ended up being quite the experience. Of course, I was watching in a production truck, so it was just like watching at home except with less comfortable furniture, a smaller TV and no snacks, but it was ...

    Matt Willis

    The Daytona 500 is an absolute crapshoot that anyone can win. And what other lies have they been feeding you? Pass And Go Drivers who have not won the Daytona 500 with the best pass differential since 2005 at Daytona International Speedway. ...

  8. Crunching NASCAR Sprint Cup numbers for the Auto Club 500

    Matt Willis

    And so we move back to your regularly scheduled NASCAR. Let's face it: The Daytona 500 doesn't really have much to do with the rest of the races on the schedule. The majority of the season is run on the intermediate ovals, like it or not. Maybe it'...

  9. Crunching NASCAR Sprint Cup numbers after the Daytona 500

    Matt Willis

    You probably haven't given potholes this much attention since ... well, since your last morning commute when you hit one and flattened your tire, or got some coffee on your suit. It might've even made your CD skip. Call me the eternal optimist, b...

  10. Crunching NASCAR Sprint Cup numbers for the Daytona 500

    Matt Willis

    Well, well, well. We've returned for another season. That means just one thing: Everybody doesn't object to me enough to make a formal request that I stop writing! Either that or people enjoy me bringing the knowledge on a twice-weekly basis. For t...

    Matt Willis

    Now that the Daytona 500 is over, it's time to move on with our regularly scheduled NASCAR season. After all, the Daytona 500 isn't indicative of how the rest of the season will go, and in restrictor-plate races, anybody can run up front. Proof? Yo...

    Post-Daytona buzz That buzz isn't just coming from Matt Kenseth's pit crew, known as the Killer Bees. One might think it strange that nobody was talking about Matt Kenseth coming into the Daytona 500. Of course, one might not also be looking at Ken...

  14. Speedweeks notes from research

    Matt Willis

    It's Daytona 500 time, in case you're not over that Pro Bowl hangover from the weekend. That's right, the Pro Bowl happened. It was fairly clear that drivers were trying in the Budweiser Shootout, which might not have been the case in the Pro Bowl....
