NASCAR's Summer SpeedWeek is in the rearview mirror, as both the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series and the NASCAR Xfinity Series wrapped up their annual July stop at the World's Center of Racing, Daytona International Speedway.
In this week's edition of the Hard Left Turn podcast, Around the Track editor Brandon Reed and NASCAR reporter Pete McCole discuss:
-Erik Jones first MENCS victory in an attrition plaqued Coke Zero Sugar 400.
-How did the "big guns" fare with all the carnage?
-Why has restrictor plate racing become such a crash-ridden event, and can it be avoided?
-Rick Stenhouse, Jr. won both early segments of the race, but was also involved in four cautions - or was it five?
-Party gone out of bounds - or - Justin Haley almost had the biggest win of his career in Friday's Xfinity race.
-Plus, we preview this weekend's NASCAR series action at Kentucky Speedway.
