  3. 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

    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...

  5. NASCAR - Talladega Superspeedway the great unknown

    Matt Willis

    Ah, Talladega. It's called the ultimate Chase wild card, but in reality, in the past three years of the Chase, the top three drivers in the standings left Talladega ranked the same way they went in. Still, it's going to be wild. In the spring, Jimm...

    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

    As a NASCAR fan and a writer, I find it quite an honor to be featured here on ESPN.com, and I'm willing to accept the fact that maybe I'm one of the lower-profile writers here on the Web site. Who doesn't love the lowered expectations? I thrive on th...

    Today, you can all call me the Talladega Truther. I'm not wearing a cape, but I'm going to come to the aid of the helpless. Defend those without a voice. Stick up for the disenfranchised. You can imagine somebody waving an American flag right now an...
