Alex Bowman was just unstoppable on Sunday at California's Auto Club Speedway, leading 110 of 200 laps en route to the victory.

On this week's show, Brandon Reed and Amy Henderson  - Pete McCole is away on "assignment" -  talk about Sunday's race, including:

-Bowman scored his second career NASCAR Cup Series race in dominating fashion on Sunday.

-Ryan Blaney can't seem to catch a break, with a flat tire robbing him of a podium finish.

-Martin Truex, Jr. also continues a run of bad luck, this time thanks to a crewman's arm cramp in the middle of a pit stop.

-Brandon thinks Ford, Chevy and Toyota seem fairly equally matched so far this year.  What does Amy think?

-Jimmie Johnson stepped into the Farewell Tour spotlight with his last full-time start at his home track.

-We also get NASCAR's race weekend in the Valley of the Sun at Phoenix Raceway.

 -WDUN will carry live MRN Radio coverage of the NASCAR race weekend from Auto Club Speedway, starting with Saturday's NASCAR Xfinity Series LS Tractor 200 at 3:30 pm on 102.9 FM and streaming live on AccessWDUN.  Coverage continues on Sunday with the NASCAR Cup Series FanShield 500 beginning at 2:30 pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.
