Who can chase down the leader?  Pass him with 14 laps to go?  The Candyman can! 

The Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series competed at ISM Raceway - aka Phoenix - over the weekend, with Kyle Busch pulling off something he just missed the week before - a weekend sweep.

On this week's Hard Left Turn podcast, Brandon Reed, Pete McCole and Amy Henderson have a look back at Sunday's Cup Series action in the Valley of the Sun, including:

-Kyle Busch was able to run down Ryan Blaney over the closing laps of Sunday's race.  He made the pass with a handful of laps, and went on to score the victory, his second in two days after winning Saturday's Xfinity Series race.

-Blaney showed his Team Penske teammates aren't the only ones with strong Fords, as he remained a contender over the final segment of Sunday's race.

-Martin Truex, Jr. finished in second, giving him his third straight top 10 finish in four races this season.

-How far is too far for a sponsor to muscle in a plug?  When it comes in the middle of competition.  Fasten your seat belts, Brandon is not a happy camper about this one.

– We preview this weekend's NASCAR action at Auto Club Speedway.
