Kyle Busch raced his way into the next round of the NASCAR Cup Playoffs, while only he and Brad Keselowski can breathe easy going into the unknown Charlotte Motor Speedway infield road course cutoff race this Sunday.
This week's Hard Left Turn podcast looks at all of the happenings from Sunday's South Point 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway, including:
-Kyle Busch stakes his claim to a Playoff spot in the next round with Saturday night's victory at Richmond Raceway.
-The "Big Three" race back into the Championship conversation, as Busch, Kevin Harvick and Martin Truex, Jr. sweep the top three spots.
-It was a big rebound night for several of the Playoff contenders who had issues a week ago at Las Vegas. Will that translate into momentum in their efforts to avoid elimination this weekend at Charlotte?
-Four drivers are now in the "Danger Zone," as they are on the outside looking in going into the first Playoff elimination weekend. Who makes it? Who will be cut?
-We preview at length the upcoming elimination race on the new infield road course at Charlotte Motor Speedway. With drivers, officials, teams and even tire manufacturers trying to figure out the new track layout, Sunday promises to be unexpected and unpredictable.
