The Hard Left Turn podcast is your dose of weekly motorsports banter between Game On's Katie B. Davis and Around the Track editor Brandon Reed.

We're three weeks out from the start of 2018 NASCAR season at Daytona International Speedway, but the racing season has begun with the Rolex 24 at Daytona and Speedfest at Watermelon Capital Speedway in Cordele.

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

Beginning of the show: The Action Express team came back from disappointment last year to score the win at the 56th Annual Rolex 24, what earned the team the win and what stood out to Brandon about the race?

4-minute mark: Discussion of Speedfest in Cordele, which was an all-Georgia event as two natives to the state picked up wins including 15-year-old Chandler Smith of Jasper.

7:30-minute mark: Kyle Busch had some interesting remarks during the annual Charlotte Media Tour regarding the move towards younger drivers on the Cup circuit. What was made of his comments and should drivers with better resumes be given more respect?

16-minute mark: Driver and innovator Dan Gurney passed away recently and Brandon shares thoughts on his legacy.

21-minute mark: Dawsonville's Spencer Davis has signed to drive a number of truck races with Kyle Busch Motorsports, is this the break he needs?

End of show: Forget about the Super Bowl, who's ready for some racing and what does the season hold?
