    Matt Willis

    Greetings to all my NASCAR stat-loving, knowledge-seeking friends. You know who you are. Today, let's talk a little Michigan, since that's the next race on the schedule and all. It's a repaved Michigan, which means speeds on an already-fast track a...

  2. NASCAR - What do the numbers say about Jimmie Johnson, Kyle Busch...

    Matt Willis

    I'll be the first to admit that numbers can be misleading. Of course, except mine. My statistics have only good intentions, looking to guide you and me together on a path of enlightenment. But other numbers can be misleading, especially when it com...

  3. NASCAR - Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne solid Darlington picks

    Matt Willis

    When a usually dominant superpower slows down from its normal winning ways, we as sports fans want to know, "What's wrong with X?" Whether it's the Yankees, Patriots, Lakers or Hendrick Motorsports, domination is the norm, and anything less leaves ...

  4. NASCAR - Winless Jimmie Johnson setting the pace

    Matt Willis

    Here we are at the quarter-pole mark of the season, and this space is usually reserved for me telling you what I think you should watch for in Sunday's race. But the truth is, it's my blog, my rules, and I feel like looking back over the first nine...

  5. NASCAR - Jimmie Johnson flat-out fast at Kansas Speedway

    Matt Willis

    We're here at the finale of my annual NASCAR Bracket of Massive Significance (patent pending), and the final matchup might surprise you: Martin Truex Jr. versus Clint Bowyer. Truex has been here before, losing in the 2010 final to Mark Martin. Bowye...

  6. NASCAR - Crunching numbers on the Sprint Cup Series at Auto Club ...

    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...

  7. NASCAR - Carl Edwards is Mr. Consistency in Chase for Cup

    Matt Willis

    Having reached the midway point of the Chase, it's time to reflect, mull things over and meditate on what we've learned. Note: This isn't just my intro; it's homework. Get mulling. First, we just can't count Jimmie Johnson out (more on that later)....

  8. NASCAR - Charlotte Motor Speedway no cakewalk for Chase leaders

    Matt Willis

    Before I get to my usual rambling and weekly preview, a quick thought: A Saturday night race this week at Charlotte Motor Speedway means no competition with the NFL and limited competition with college football. If NASCAR were to start holding race...

  9. NASCAR - Jimmie Johnson not the only story in Kansas

    Matt Willis

    Whoa, whoa, whoa. Let's take it easy. Who was it that said Jimmie Johnson was out of this year's Chase? It definitely wasn't me, although I did wonder if he had the speed this year he's had in years past. And it probably wasn't anyone who's watched ...

  10. NASCAR - Tony Stewart shakes up Chase standings

    Matt Willis

    Ryan McGee tweeted it best when he wrote: "If the Chase is really a microcosm of the regular season, of course we'd start with a fuel mileage race." Only instead of an upset winner, we had Tony Stewart, who had a strong car all race. It started the...

  11. NASCAR - Chasing Jimmie Johnson at Chicagoland

    Matt Willis

    Ah, here we are at the Chase, and I do believe it's my time to shine. But, how much can we depend on past numbers to judge performance at Chicagoland Speedway. After all, this is the first time it's been the first race of the Chase. And unlike past...

  12. 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.

  13. Crunching Numbers: Denny Hamlin went against history for Michigan...

    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...

  14. Crunching Numbers: Is Jimmie Johnson due at Michigan?

    Matt Willis

    Let me start throwing some numbers at you, since that's sort of my thing. How about 0-for-18 ... well, I guess that's a couple of numbers. But that's Jimmie Johnson's career record at Michigan, with just a pair of top-5 finishes in that time. He...

  15. The Coca-Cola 600 Jimmie Johnson's to lose? Not so fast ...

    Matt Willis

    Listen up, because I'm about to drop some knowledge on you. I know Jimmie Johnson's six Charlotte wins make him a tempting fantasy play this weekend. But when you're picking your A-lister for Sunday evening, you should go with a guy who's never won...
