  1. NASCAR - Denny Hamlin joining some elite company

    Matt Willis

    Working on ESPN2's "NASCAR Now" has a certain number of perks that come with it. One is the chance to talk NASCAR, and other assorted random topics, with our reporters and analysts. Monday, Ricky Craven was in house and on the show. The main topic ...

  2. NASCAR - Kyle Busch gaining Chase momentum

    Matt Willis

    Occasionally all this number digging and stat crunching pays off. I know our "NASCAR Now" analysts appreciate it, but let's be honest, it's nice when I sound smart. Nearly two months ago, before the Kentucky race, I wrote that despite being third in...

    Matt Willis

    Heading to work on "NASCAR Now" on Monday, the first topic we discussed was the nature of Ryan Newman's win on Saturday at Phoenix. Although he had just moved into the top five, he seemed destined to finish around fifth before Scott Riggs brought out...

    Work out at the gym, check. Nice dinner, complete with a little snack, check. "NASCAR Now" cued up on the DVR, check. Let's get writing. That ringing you're hearing isn't just your hearing going, although it might be, because I'm not a doctor. It's...

  5. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers after Talladega

    Matt Willis

    As Randy LaJoie said on Sunday night's postrace edition of "NASCAR Now" ... it's over, print the T-shirts. I wish I could get just a sip of that magical elixir Jimmie Johnson and Chad Knaus are taking huge gulps of. With about 20 laps to go on Sunda...

  6. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers for Michigan

    Matt Willis

    When I was out at Indianapolis a couple of weeks ago, I got some time after the prerace "NASCAR Now" show and before the race to wander around the merchandise trailers and soak in the experience of my first trip to the Brickyard. On a side note, I w...

  7. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers for Chicagoland

    Matt Willis

    I got the news fairly recently that I will be the researcher ESPN sends to Indianapolis to work on "NASCAR Now" from the Brickyard. Even though I'll be experiencing the race from a production truck outside the track, I'll be the first to admit it's ...

    Matt Willis

    Working on "NASCAR Now" for the Monday roundtable, our poll question dealt with what you thought of Joey Logano's first career Sprint Cup win. The choices: • A great strategic call by Zippy • A win is a win is a win (doesn't ...

  9. Matt Willis: Crunching Sprint Cup numbers after Bristol

    Matt Willis

    Working on the Sunday morning prerace show and the Monday roundtable on "NASCAR Now" gives me a chance to talk with some of our NASCAR analysts about some great subjects. No, not just about North Carolina basketball with notable Tar Heels fan Dale J...

  10. NASCAR - Brad Keselowski winning often now

    Matt Willis

    Since it's my blog, I'm going to imagine that you asked why I thought Brad Keselowski's win on Saturday was so impressive. Let me tell you. Keselowski has won on a short track, a restrictor-plate track and a superspeedway this season. That's just a...

  11. NASCAR - Joey Logano now a repeat Sprint Cup winner

    Matt Willis

    Almost three years ago, Joey Logano was mired in a subpar Sprint Cup race in a very mediocre rookie season. Sitting 24th in points, Logano spun after the halfway point at New Hampshire, which allowed him to play pit strategy when the weather began to...

    Matt Willis

    What a great time to be a sports fan! NASCAR is in full swing, but right now, it gets overshadowed by the NCAA tournament. But why let the college hoops fans have all the fun and enjoyment that brackets can bring? For the past few years, I've had ...

    Matt Willis

    Every race is a learning session. Not only for teams and drivers, but for humble NASCAR researchers too. Geez, I sound like one of those NASCAR commercials now. In fact, I wouldn't mind supplementing my income if anybody with any sway is reading this...

  15. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers for Michigan

    Matt Willis

    The other day, I was playing the hypothetical game, as I'm apt to do. The question was, "If you were starting your own NASCAR team, who would you want as the driver(s)?" Now, of course, you have to put some limits on it. Obviously, you're not going ...

    Matt Willis

    Now that the Daytona 500 is over, it's time to move on with our regularly scheduled NASCAR season. After all, the Daytona 500 isn't indicative of how the rest of the season will go, and in restrictor-plate races, anybody can run up front. Proof? Yo...
