  1. NASCAR - Crunching numbers - Brickyard winner Jimmie Johnson adds...

    Matt Willis

    There are few venues across all of sports that are more historic than Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Which makes me, a fan of NASCAR's legacy, a happy man. That being said, I'm well aware that Indianapolis doesn't provide the most thrilling race. That...

  2. NASCAR - Clint Bowyer continues new-winner parade

    Matt Willis

    Last year was lauded for having a variety of winners and wild endings. While this year hasn't lived up to the crazy finishes (last year set a high bar), we've kept up the string of variety in Victory Lane, which shouldn't surprise anyone. Clint Bowy...

  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...

    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...

  5. NASCAR - Tony Stewart makes history at Homestead

    Matt Willis

    You couldn't have asked more of a season that included 18 different winners, a points battle that ended in a dead heat and was decided on a tiebreaker and a NASCAR stats blogger who provided about 80 blog posts throughout the season. I won't lie: So...

  6. NASCAR - Tony Stewart shakes up Chase standings

    Matt Willis

    Ryan McGee tweeted it best when he wrote: "If the Chase is really a microcosm of the regular season, of course we'd start with a fuel mileage race." Only instead of an upset winner, we had Tony Stewart, who had a strong car all race. It started the...

  7. Kyle Busch, Showdown favorite

    Matt Willis

    Kyle Busch is simply dominant at Bristol. And with the Sprint Summer Showdown competition winding down, he's primed to have an extra million dollars in his firesuit.

  8. NASCAR - Roush Fenway Racing the class of Michigan field

    Matt Willis

    This NASCAR season has me befuddled, and I love it. There have been 15 different race winners already, with five of them winning for the first time. There's been no dominant driver, as Kyle Busch and Kevin Harvick co-lead the series with three wins...

  9. 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...

  10. NASCAR - Paul Menard's Brickyard 400 win bucks history

    Matt Willis

    Ah, another race, another surprise winner. Say what you will about races being decided by pit strategy, but I love it. It's another element to add to the track. It takes a wonderful mix of speed and cunning to win these races. But has that led to ...

  11. Ryan Newman the 13th different winner in 19 NASCAR Sprint Cup rac...

    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...

  12. Crunching Numbers: Pick a Kentucky winner? How about David Ragan!...

    Matt Willis

    OK, I'm willing to admit when I am beat. This is one of those times. There's not a whole lot I can do to preview the Kentucky race specifically. You know, that whole thing about their not having previously run there. I could use Nationwide Series ...

    Matt Willis

    Who needed to go out to see a summer blockbuster when you have Daytona? What didn't Saturday night's race have? It was a tale of redemption, as David Ragan came back from disappointing 2009 and 2010 seasons and the heartbreak of this year's Daytona...

    Matt Willis

    If there's been one prevailing theme to this season so far, it has to be the semisuccessful return of my weekly Eliminator pick. Wait, no, that isn't it, but if that's what you've taken out of this season so far, then bless you. No, what I'll reme...

    Matt Willis

    What an odd NASCAR season it has been. We've had first-time winners in the two biggest races of the year, Trevor Bayne in the Daytona 500 and Regan Smith in the Southern 500. The third "crown jewel" race, last week's 600-miler at Charlotte, saw a la...

  16. Regan Smith most unlikely NASCAR Sprint Cup winner ever?

    Matt Willis

    Sometimes, the circumstances dictate that I switch things up in my little blog here. Don't fret -- the regular format will return in due time. But Saturday's race was so gigantic, I'll use my space this week to determine whether Regan Smith was the...
