Martin Truex Jr. was once again a winner - and Chase Elliott again the second-place finisher - when all was said and done in Charlotte this past weekend. The highs (Truex and Elliott) and the lows (Kyle Busch) are all discussed in this week's edition of the Hard Left Turn podcast with Around the Track editor Brandon Reed and racing's own third wheel Katie B. Davis.

Beginning of show: A random story about Katie B.'s recent weekend adventure to Asheville

5-minute mark: Martin Truex Jr. didn't dominate, but was right where he needed to be when it counted to get another playoff win. Is there any slowing down Truex?

8-minute mark: Dawsonville-native Chase Elliott finished second for the second-straight week, but was Sunday's showing the kind Elliott and his team needed after the disappointment at Dover?

12:30-minute mark: Kyle Busch had a horrible, no-good, rotten, very bad day and Brandon gets into why

17:30-minute mark: The optics weren't great, Denny Hamlin complaining the drivers don't get paid enough in the immediate aftermath of showing off his new (very large) digs; but did Hamlin have a point?

23-minute mark: Pete McCole, who was covering the Bank of America 500 for the Around the Track page, asked Dale Earnhardt Jr. the final question in his final media availability at his final race at his home track and the ask harkened back to what got Pete started in race coverage to begin with.

  • Includes audio of Dale Earnhardt Jr.

26:30-minute mark: Brandon discusses Jennifer Everett's win at Hartwell Speedway this past weekend and an event coming up at the track the weekend of Oct. 14 set to bring attention to a very important cause

  • Includes audio with Hartwell Speedway Event Director Heather Rhoades
