  5. NASCAR - Chase contenders outnumber playoff pretenders

    Matt Willis

  6. NASCAR - Brad Keselowski's great run continues

    I'm going to call it like I see it. As a stats guy, I love it when I'm right. Who doesn't? But, sometimes, I like being proved wrong when it means somebody has thrown past evidence aside to succeed, and that's why I'm digging Brad Keselowski after ...

    First of all, I want to invite everybody to just take it easy. The consensus seems to be that with Jimmie Johnson taking a Dover win that he'll now be hitting on all cylinders, and it's just a matter of going through the final eight races before we ...

    Allow me to gush for just a moment. I love Dover. I think it's one of the most exciting tracks on the Sprint Cup circuit, definitely the most underrated. It features side-by-side racing, and the action reminds me of an August Saturday night race at ...
