PODCAST: Hard Left Turn with Brandon Reed and Katie B. (11-14-17)

By AccessWDUN staff

Matt Kenseth was the big winner when the checkered flag flew at Phoenix on Sunday, but Brad Keselowski earned a win as well, earning a spot in the Cup Championship at Homestead-Miami via points.

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

Beginning of show: A discussion of where Matt Kenseth's Sunday win at Phoenix ranks in his career

  • As a side note to the main topic, how NASCAR has become a fickle beast

9-minute mark: Many were/are disappointed that Chase Elliott was once again relegated to second place and, as a result, not in contention for the Cup Championship, Katie B. and Brandon give their take

11-minute mark: Was what Chase did to Denny Hamlin in Phoenix payback for Martinsville?

15:15-minute mark: The other big winner at Phoenix was Brad Keselowski, how did he work his way into the championship?

18-minute mark: No Hendrick cars are in the race for the championship, what does that say about the state of Hendrick and Chevy right now?

21:50-minute mark: Among the four drivers contending for the Cup, who has the edge?

  • 2017 Cup Championship picks
