  2. Johnson could spoil Kenseths history

    Matt Willis

    Matt Kenseth's Chase has started about as well as it could, with back-to-back wins at Chicago and New Hampshire putting him atop the points with eight races remaining. That start, although impressive, is not unprecedented. Kenseth is the third...

    Matt Willis

    "The race may not always be to the swift nor the victory to the strong, but that's how you bet." That's right, we're going to start today's blog with a literary quote, thanks to Damon Runyon. I'm with Mr. Runyon in that this week's race isn't likel...

  5. NASCAR - Top drivers may struggle at Sonoma

    Matt Willis

    Crunching Numbers: Top Drivers May Struggle at Sonoma? For those of you who know me (we're all just one big happy family in this blog circle), you'll know that I love variety. Which is why I'm glad NASCAR has at least a couple of road courses on the...

    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...

  7. NASCAR - Brad Keselowski's power move at Talladega

    Matt Willis

    When Brad Keselowski got his first career Sprint Cup win at Talladega Superspeedway three years ago, I think people chalked it up to an upset Talladega win. It was for a team that had never won a Cup race, in Keselowski's fifth career start, and he ...

  8. NASCAR - Crunching numbers on Matt Kenseth's win

    Matt Willis

    How will the 2012 Daytona 500 be remembered? Is it the race that saw Juan Pablo Montoya hit the jet dryer, causing a massive fire and a two-hour red flag (message: jet fuel burns well)? Is it the race that saw Brad Keselowski gain about 130,000 Twit...

  9. NASCAR - Carl Edwards, Tony Stewart to tangle in Texas

    Matt Willis

    Let's face it, numbers can be confusing or just downright misleading from time to time. Ever try doing your taxes, or know what a fractal is? This is where I come to do my service, trying to go inside the numbers where they might do a great job them...

  10. 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...

  11. NASCAR - Tony Stewart's turn to make Chase run?

    Matt Willis

    OK, kids, gather around close. Not too close, though. I want to talk today about which of these championship contenders has a favorable schedule heading down the stretch. Now, forgive me in advance, but I'm going to halt the talk at the top five, t...

  12. 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)....

  13. 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...

  14. 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...

  15. 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...

    Matt Willis

    The theme to this weekend's race in Pocono? Triangles! All sorts of triangles! No, wait, that's not it. Let's go with redemption, like the sequel to a movie, with the sheriff riding back into town looking to reclaim his post. And I'm not referring...
