PODCAST: Hard Left Turn - Hamlin wins in unpredictable Talladega finish

Our Hard Left Turn crew told you last week that the only thing you could expect on Sunday at Talladega Superspeedway was that it would be unpredictable.

Maybe next time you'll take them at their word!

Denny Hamlin passed four cars with one turn to go as the leaders tangled in turn four, and then won the race to the checkered flag to win the NASCAR Cup Series YellaWood 500.

On this week's Hard Left Turn podcast, Brandon Reed, Pete McCole and Amy Henderson take a deep breath and bring you all the news from the past race weekend, including:

-Hamlin punches his ticket to the Round of 8, joining Kevin Harvick and Kurt Busch in being locked in going into this weekend's cutoff race.

-Only two Playoff contenders - Hamlin and Chase Elliott - finished in the top 10 as the Round of 12 standings took a big jumble on Sunday.

-Last week brought the biggest, craziest news yet of the Silly Season as NASCAR announced the 2021 Cup Series schedule.  We'll try to break it down for you.  Emphasis on "try".

-More news came on Tuesday with the announcement of Alex Bowman moving from the No. 88 to the No. 48 for Hendrick Motorsports next year.

-Plus, we'll preview the final race of the Round of 12 with Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race on the Charlotte Motor Speedway infield road course.
