Martinsville housed plenty of on- and off-track drama, but more than anything, left a number of drivers in must-win situations heading down the stretch to Homestead and the Monster Energy Cup Championship.

In this week's edition of the Hard Left Turn podcast, Around the Track editor Brandon Reed and Katie B. discuss:

Beginning of show: Brandon's take on the post-race dustup between Chase Elliott and Denny Hamlin is far from the conventional rhetoric being spewed and he isn't shy about voicing it.

17-minute mark: A discussion on words spoken by Dale Earnhardt Jr. on Monday night about what NASCAR could learn from its short-track brethren

22-minute mark: Does Kyle Busch's win change how he and his team approach Texas and Phoenix?

25-minute mark: What driver(s) other than Chase Elliott were left in dire straits when all was said and done at Martinsville?

28-minute mark: Will we see any payback over the next two races?

You can listen to the AAA Texas 500 from Texas Motor Speedway starting at 2 p.m. Sunday on FM102.9 WDUN, and streaming on AccessWDUN. For up-to-the-minute motorsports information, follow @WDUNRacing on Twitter and log on to the Around the Track page for complete coverage.
