  7. NASCAR - Kurt Busch could keep rolling at Kansas

    Matt Willis

    What does the 2011 season have that past seasons haven't? A second race at Kansas! OK, that may not have been the most delightful riddle. Try this one on for size instead. Why did I try the fish? Just for the halibut. That's terrible ... I lo...

  9. NASCAR - Jimmie Johnson finding his Chase groove

    Matt Willis

    Since 1980, we've run only two races on a Tuesday. In 2007, for Kurt Busch's win at Michigan, I didn't have a blog. This time, I do have a blog, and a splendid one at that. But given the short turnaround between a Tuesday race and a Saturday night ...
