NASCAR SpeedWeeks at Daytona International Speedway is in full swing, and the Hard Left Turn crew is set to get you up to speed leading up to Sunday's running of the "Great American Race."

On this week's edition of the Hard Left Turn podcast, Brandon Reed and Amy Henderson (Pete McCole is away on assignment) take a look at the latest news out of Daytona, including:

-Jimmie Johnson won Sunday's rain shortened Adavance Auto Parts Clash, but it didn't come without some controversy.  Brandon and Amy discuss.

-William Byron and Alex Bowman led an all Team Hendrick assault force in Daytona 500 qualifying.  But will that equate to success on Sunday?

-The Gander RV Duel At Daytona qualifying races on Thursday will set the field for the Daytona 500.  But do these races really matter in the Team Charter age?

-While Amy and Brandon say they won't make any picks for a winner in the Daytona 500 until later in the week (keep an eye on @WDUNRacing for their picks), they do have some opinions on what we might see on Sunday.

Don't forget, WDUN will carry MRN Radio coverage of the NASCAR season opening weekend at the Daytona International Speedway, beginning with Thursday night’s Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Gander RV Duel At Daytona beginning at 6 pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and and streaming live on AccessWDUN.  Coverage continues on Saturday with the NASCAR Xfinity Series NASCAR Racing Experience 300 beginning at 2 pm on 102.9 FM and streaming live on AccessWDUN.  That's followed on Sunday with the 61st running of the Daytona 500 for the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series begining at 1:30 pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.
