  1. NASCAR - Denny Hamlin had speed but little luck at New Hampshire

    Matt Willis

    As is my custom when I'm not traveling the Eastern seaboard, gallivanting about on vacation, I was participating in the ESPN.com chat during Sunday's Sprint Cup race at New Hampshire. When asked what I thought about Denny Hamlin's chances to win whe...

  2. 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

    Sunday's Sprint Cup race at Martinsville Speedway had a little something for everyone. It had long green-flag runs, slam-and-bang racing, heated tempers, controversial cautions and even a beacon of light for the conspiracy theorists out there in Davi...

  4. NASCAR - Marcos Ambrose makes Aussie history

    Matt Willis

    Let's face it, the Sprint Cup race at Watkins Glen had just about everything. We had a first-time winner, courtesy of a pass in a three-car battle during a green-white-checkered finish. Cars were flipping or on fire, as just about everybody with a s...

    Matt Willis

    Greetings, my friends. Welcome back to everybody's favorite Tuesday-based breakdown of the weekend's Sprint Cup race. You don't have to read it on Tuesday, although I definitely recommend doing so for freshness sake. Sometimes it's important to paus...

  6. Crunching numbers for Atlanta

    Matt Willis

    Just because there was no Sprint Cup race last weekend doesn't necessarily mean that it was an off weekend. There was news aplenty, with assurance that Kevin Harvick would be staying with Richard Childress Racing for at least 2010 and Brad Keselowsk...

  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 ...

    Matt Willis

    Looking straight up at the Sprint Cup winners at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, two teams have dominated Victory Lane -- Hendrick Motorsports and Roush Fenway Racing, combining to win 12 of the 14 races at the track. And although Kyle Busch and Carl Edw...

    Matt Willis

    One question I get asked more than others (besides that annoying "why do they always turn left?" question) is what driver do I root for? Placing journalistic integrity (of which I have a little) aside, when I started watching NASCAR, I rooted for B...

  10. Kyle Busch or Denny Hamlin at Richmond International Raceway?

    Matt Willis

    Slaving away at my desk while preparing the research department's weekly Sprint Cup Series race preview packet, I come across statistics both meaningful and completely pointless. I love both equally. By the way, my favorite recent meaningless stat t...

    Matt Willis

    Well, that was something, wasn't it? And yet, you can't please everybody. Participating in the live ESPN.com chat during the race (why haven't you joined the party?), I found that many miss pack racing (drivers not included in that mix) and disappro...

    Matt Willis

    NASCAR-reading audience, let me speak for you all. I am a voice of the people, if nothing else. I speak for a generation! It seems like the audience is unhappy with the fact that Sprint Cup Series regulars are running in Nationwide Series races and ...

  13. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching for Kansas Speedway

    Matt Willis

    Now we find out who's really ready to make a run to the Sprint Cup title. I say that, despite the fact that we're already 20 percent into the Chase. Yes, I'm well aware those races happened. I was at work for them. It was a good time. No, I bring u...

  14. NASCAR Sprint Cup Series number crunching for Atlanta

    Matt Willis

    I'd be remiss if I didn't use this little digital space to talk about Boris Said's Nationwide Series win at Montreal. We are coming off a bye week for Sprint Cup, and the Race to the Chase seems to be a mere formality at this point. It's not too oft...

    And there you have it. The field is set and we're ready to race for a championship with 12 of the finest that the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series has to offer. But we'll have plenty of time to look ahead to the Chase later this week. I'm still buzzing on R...

  16. Crunching Sprint Cup numbers after Chicagoland

    Matt Willis

    Not a bad show at Chicago, and the ending was surely worth staying up for. But that's quickly becoming the norm in the wild ride that is the 2009 Sprint Cup Series season. Look at the last five races: • Michigan: Jimmie Johnson and Greg B...
