    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...

  6. 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...

  7. NASCAR - Talladega proved tough again

    Matt Willis

    You knew we were going to have some hot topics coming out of Talladega. I wouldn't have it any other way. Several Chasers wrecked, Kevin Harvick and the Amazing Flying Busch Brothers among them. That's the hard luck that's par for the course at Tall...

  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 - Chase contenders outnumber playoff pretenders

    Matt Willis

    The theme for the 2011 Chase for the NASCAR Sprint Cup so far, at least for this humble researcher, is competition. Not only do we have a tie atop the standings, with Kevin Harvick getting the tiebreaker and therefore the points lead over Carl Edwar...

  10. NASCAR - Is this the real start of Gordon's drive for five?

    Matt Willis

    It should be pretty widely accepted that this is the best sports time of the year. We have the Chase, the start of college and pro football, baseball pennant races, and so on. But, I'm here to talk Chase, since that's probably why you clicked on me....

  11. NASCAR - Roush Fenway Racing the class of Michigan field

    Matt Willis

    This NASCAR season has me befuddled, and I love it. There have been 15 different race winners already, with five of them winning for the first time. There's been no dominant driver, as Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick co-lead the series with three wins...

  12. Crunching Numbers: Pick a Kentucky winner? How about David Ragan!...

    Matt Willis

    OK, I'm willing to admit when I am beat. This is one of those times. There's not a whole lot I can do to preview the Kentucky race specifically. You know, that whole thing about their not having previously run there. I could use Nationwide Series ...

    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...

  15. Kevin Harvick perfecting the late-race surge

    Matt Willis

    I think Jimmie Johnson said it best when he told Kevin Harvick, "Hey Kevin Harvick, can I have my horseshoe back? Please?" Well, he didn't say it per se, but he did tweet it, which is basically the same thing. (You can follow me at @MattWillisESPN. ...

    Matt Willis

    An interesting and completely meaningless thought popped into my head the other day, as they're apt to do. If I were to run around Martinsville Speedway, just over a half-mile in length and fairly flat, how long would it take me? I can't remember t...
