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.

WDUN will carry live MRN radio coverage of all the action from Auto Club Speedway this weekend.  It starts with Saturday’s NASCAR Xfinity Series Production Alliance Group 300 beginning at 4:30 on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.  On Sunday, it’s the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series Auto Club 400 beginning at 2:30 on WDUN 102.9 FM, AM 550 or streaming live on AccessWDUN.
