PODCAST: Hard Left Turn with Brandon Reed and Katie B. (3-12-18)

By AccessWDUN staff

Kevin Harvick did it again over the weekend, this time continuing his winning ways out West in the Valley of the Sun. The weekend also housed the best finish of the 2018 season for Chase Elliott.

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

Beginning of show: Kevin Harvick made history Sunday becoming the all-time wins leader at Phoenix, is there any stopping him at this point?

8-minute mark: Harvick spent the week listening to naysayers lament his ways after a post-race docking of points by NASCAR due to a broken brace on his car. Was Sunday proper vindication and did Harvick view it as such?

10:45-minute mark: The Ford domination continued at Phoenix where four top 10 finishers were Stewart-Haas teammate Fords. What has Stewart-Haas hit on early?

14-minute mark: What does Aric Almirola's early-season success in the car formerly driven by Danica Patrick say about his predecessor?

24:30-minute mark: A discussion of the importance of Chase Elliott's run

27:50-minute mark: Katie B. and Brandon take a hard left turn to discuss Sweet Heat Skittles

31:50: Is Brandon surprised at how badly some of the Chevy teams, including seven-time champ Jimmie Johnson - are doing?

35:40-minute mark: A look ahead to the weekend in California
