    Matt Willis

    There was a time when Denny Hamlin was an absolute lock at Pocono, and just about any flat track for that matter. But, as is often the case with NASCAR, the field has caught up. Hamlin won his first two career starts at the Tricky Triangle, then was...

  3. NASCAR - Crunching numbers - Breaking down the Brickyard 400

    Matt Willis

    Let's take a trip down memory lane, shall we? All the way back to two weeks ago (wavy lines indicating flashback). Yes, Denny Hamlin was dominating at New Hampshire, but came up just short of the win, as Kasey Kahne was hoisting the trophy that Haml...

  4. NASCAR - Denny Hamlin had speed but little luck at New Hampshire

    Matt Willis

    As is my custom when I'm not traveling the Eastern seaboard, gallivanting about on vacation, I was participating in the ESPN.com chat during Sunday's Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire. When asked what I thought about Denny Hamlin's chances to win whe...

  5. NASCAR - The curious case of Jeff Gordon

    Matt Willis

    We're at Pocono Raceway, and this is the point of the year when I usually have two main points to make: 1. Triangle racing is more interesting than it's given credit. 2. Denny Hamlin flat owns this place. Don't let last year's lackluster finish...

    Matt Willis

    On Sunday at Kansas Speedway, it was Denny Hamlin and Martin Truex Jr. battling for the win -- a race win and a symbolic win. See, one of the subplots of the season has been the emergence of Michael Waltrip Racing and whether it has surpassed Joe G...

  7. NASCAR - Denny Hamlin joining some elite company

    Matt Willis

    Working on ESPN2's "NASCAR Now" has a certain number of perks that come with it. One is the chance to talk NASCAR, and other assorted random topics, with our reporters and analysts. Monday, Ricky Craven was in house and on the show. The main topic ...

    The men's and women's college basketball tournaments are down to just four teams each, but here in my NASCAR Bracket of Massive Significance, I'm not ready for that yet. Our quarterfinals have left us with some very intriguing matchups: Earnhardt Br...

  9. NASCAR - Crunching numbers on Denny Hamlin's win

    Matt Willis

    What's in a number? Frankly for me, quite a bit, seeing as I'm employed as a researcher and a statistically themed blogger. Driving a car with the No. 11 on it didn't make Denny Hamlin great, but he helped add to the legacy of a number that has been...

    Matt Willis

    You haven't heard from me in a couple of months, but it's not like I haven't been hard at work. I've been off in the Himalayas, pondering, reflecting and crunching the numbers in search of a fine year in NASCAR statistics and analysis. OK, that's...

  11. NASCAR - Kyle Busch gaining Chase momentum

    Matt Willis

    Occasionally all this number digging and stat crunching pays off. I know our "NASCAR Now" analysts appreciate it, but let's be honest, it's nice when I sound smart. Nearly two months ago, before the Kentucky race, I wrote that despite being third in...

    Matt Willis

    For us NASCAR statistical bloggers, of which I believe I'm the only one, there are certain nightmare situations. Like having all your notes written, and then an engine failure or a late-race caution completely destroys your race recap. Or when your ...

    Matt Willis

    If there's been one prevailing theme to this season so far, it has to be the semisuccessful return of my weekly Eliminator pick. Wait, no, that isn't it, but if that's what you've taken out of this season so far, then bless you. No, what I'll reme...

    Matt Willis

    Call it the Curse of Jimmie Johnson. Do it because I told you to! Jeff Gordon finished second to Johnson in points in 2007. The next year, he went winless. Carl Edwards was second in 2008 and Mark Martin in 2009, and both failed to visit Victory La...

  15. Crunching Numbers: Jeff Gordon back in NASCAR championship form

    Matt Willis

    In my sleep-deprived Sunday night state (never go to a late Saturday movie and then work a 12-hour day starting at 5 a.m.), I got to think about what I would've written about Jeff Gordon had I had this blog as a teenager back in the 1990s. Back in t...

  16. Crunching Numbers: Beware Denny Hamlin at Pocono Raceway

    Matt Willis

    Welcome to our first trip of the season to Pocono Raceway. If you miss this one, I believe they go back there about three days later. But if you're free between 1-10 p.m. ET on Sunday, feel free to catch the race. I kid because I love. Despite the...
