  1. NASCAR - Crunching numbers - Jeff Gordon surging at the right tim...

    Matt Willis

    NASCAR can be quite fickle. Earlier this season, we saw some races, most notably at Martinsville Speedway, where Jeff Gordon had victory snatched from under his nose. At Pocono Raceway, the pendulum swung back the other way, as it's apt to do. With...

  2. NASCAR - Crunching numbers - Denny Hamlin, Jimmie Johnson rule at...

    Matt Willis

    There was a time when Denny Hamlin was an absolute lock at Pocono, and just about any flat track for that matter. But, as is often the case with NASCAR, the field has caught up. Hamlin won his first two career starts at the Tricky Triangle, then was...

  3. 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...

  4. NASCAR - The curious case of Jeff Gordon

    Matt Willis

    We're at Pocono Raceway, and this is the point of the year when I usually have two main points to make: 1. Triangle racing is more interesting than it's given credit. 2. Denny Hamlin flat owns this place. Don't let last year's lackluster finish...

  5. NASCAR - Brad Keselowski's one-footed feat

    Matt Willis

    The biggest story coming out of Pocono is definitely what Brad Keselowski did on a fractured ankle. And I have to say, I'm thoroughly impressed. I sprained an ankle playing in the ESPN Flag Football League a couple years ago, and that was bad enough ...

  6. NASCAR - Jeff Gordon, Kasey Kahne and Matt Kenseth looking for re...

    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...

  7. Crunching Numbers: Jeff Gordon back in NASCAR championship form

    Matt Willis

    In my sleep-deprived Sunday night state (never go to a late Saturday movie and then work a 12-hour day starting at 5 a.m.), I got to think about what I would've written about Jeff Gordon had I had this blog as a teenager back in the 1990s. Back in t...

  8. Crunching Numbers: Beware Denny Hamlin at Pocono Raceway

    Matt Willis

    Welcome to our first trip of the season to Pocono Raceway. If you miss this one, I believe they go back there about three days later. But if you're free between 1-10 p.m. ET on Sunday, feel free to catch the race. I kid because I love. Despite the...

  9. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching after Pocono Raceway

    Matt Willis

    Greetings, my brothers and sisters in NASCAR. Today, because I feel so close to each and every one of my readers, I'm going to let you in on a little secret. But also, because this is a public column and all (it comes free with the Internet), I'm g...

    Matt Willis

    I consider myself a man of the people. In fact, I've been a person myself for quite some time. In being a man of the people, I like to go to bat for the little guys, those pushed around and badmouthed by the public. Today, I stick up for Pocono Rac...

    Matt Willis

    I don't know what the weather was like in your neck of the woods today, but here in Connecticut, it couldn't be lovelier. Blue skies, moderate temperatures, gentle breeze. A perfect day for the Research Department softball team (nicknamed Research & ...

  13. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers after the Pennsylvania 500

    Matt Willis

    I really enjoyed having some Monday racing this week. Nothing brightens up a day with an early wake-up call and spreading poison oak-related blisters quite like weekday racing. And the racing wasn't bad either. Although the race started a little slo...

  14. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers for Pocono

    Matt Willis

    It's funny that Pocono follows Indianapolis on the schedule, given that it's the only track on the Sprint Cup schedule that comes close to resembling the historic Brickyard. Plus, it's fun that we get to use the term "roval" again this week. Pocono ...

  15. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers after Pocono

    Matt Willis

    There were a lot of stories coming out of Pocono: The first points win for Stewart-Haas Racing. The first win by an owner/driver since 1998 (more on that later). The beginning of double-file restarts, which I enjoyed for their craziness. But, since ...

  16. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers for Pocono

    Matt Willis

    Friends, countrymen, students bored in class and reading this on laptops, lend me your ears! Yes, schools across the nation are wrapping up in the near future, if they haven't already wrapped up another academic year. Although you should be paying a...
