If there's one thing our Hard Left Turn crew loves, it's a first time winner.  Bubba Wallace scored a historic victory in Monday's rain delayed NASCAR Cup Series race at Talladega Superspeedway for his first career series win.

The Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at all the action from Monday's race at Talladega, including:

-Bubba Wallace becomes just the second African-American to win at the highest level of NASCAR with Monday's victory at Talladega.

-It was part of a historic weekend that saw the first time winners in all three of NASCAR's National Touring Series - the first time it has happened at the same track on the same weekend.

-It was a tough outing for Hendrick Motorsports, with two of the four cars not finishing the race.

-Even though it was rain shortened, Monday's race had a big effect on the NASCAR Playoff standings.

-On Sunday, word came of the death of former NASCAR driver and Georgia native John Wes Townley.

Plus, we preview the upcoming race weekend on the Charlotte Motor Speedway infield road course.
