Chase Elliott's team made a bold move when the caution flag flew late in Sunday's Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Dover International Speedway.
While everyone else hit pit road, Elliott stayed on the track for new tires. That gave the Dawsonville, Georgia speedster the opportunity he needed to score his second career series victory.
This week's Hard Left Turn podcast looks at all of the action from Sunday's Gander Outdoors 400 at Dover International Speedway, including:
-The gusy call by Chase Elliott's team and a fortunate late caution gives him his second trip to victory lane. But without that final yellow flag, could Elliott have held on against fresher tires?
-Aric Almirola again came close to victory, only to see it go away with a late caution followed by a crash as he tried to race through the field. How many more near misses until Almirola gets to victory lane?
-It was not the best weekend for Almirola's teammate, Kevin Harvick, who dominated the race until a freak situation on pit road cost him a lap.
-Both Kyle Larson and Kyle Busch were expected to contend for the win on Sunday, but neither were really a part of the conversation all day long. What went wrong for both teams?
-We preview this weekend's NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega, along with the championship scene, the incresingly long and confusing names of races and the recently announced 2019 aero-package for the Cup Series - all in one go!
