The O'Reilly Auto Parts 500 from Texas Motor Speedway was a race of attrition as only 26 cars finished, however, it was also a down-to-the wire race as Kyle Busch edged Kevin Harvick for his first win of the season.

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

How did Busch manage to hold off the season's most dominant driver thus far in Harvick?

How Harvick and his team battled back from three bouts with adversity Sunday to secure a second-place finish

A multitude of the day's accidents seemed to be triggered by tire failures of some sort, so what was the deal with the tires Goodyear brought to Texas?

Martin Truex Jr. was one of the unfortunate masses to not finish, was his momentum hurt at all by the last-place outing?

Should Chase Elliott and team be happy with their day?

  • Includes a discussion on whether or not Chase is where he needs to be a year and a few races into his career

Will Bristol be as wild and willy as ever?

FROM DOWNTOWN: Goodbye to Big Red's "beautiful" greeter
One of the first messages I received after Walt Snelling passed away Wednesday was from my middle sister Kristi, “I believe Gainesville may close down for a day,” she wrote. A notorious provider of tongue-in-cheek material, this particular message from my sister was void of that sentiment. There was no sarcasm in her words, why? Because if a city were to mourn in the aforementioned collective fashion, who better to make it happen than a man who represented it so well for so long?
