NASCAR's lone trip to the Finger Lakes region of New York is now history with Sunday's running of the Go Bowling At The Glen at New York's Watkins Glen International.
In this week's edition of the Hard Left Turn podcast, Around the Track editor Brandon Reed and NASCAR reporter Pete McCole have a look at the race, including:
-Monday's breaking news of the arrest of NASCAR chairman and CEO Brian France in New York's Hamptons on charges of driving while intoxicated and criminal possession of oxycodone. Brandon and Pete discuss the impact this could have on the sport.
-Chase Elliott scores his first Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series victory at Watkins Glen. We discuss how great it was to see the Dawsonvlle, Georgia driver finally get his first Cup win.
-Pit road was treacherous on Sunday, impacting several drivers, but maybe none more than Kyle Busch. We discuss his pit stop woes, and his incredible charge back through the field.
-We preview Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series race on the road course at the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course and Sunday’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series race at Michigan International Speedway.
