Prior to Sunday, Kyle Larson had never made it to the Championship 4 in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs. Now he's the favorite for many to take the title.
Our Hard Left Turn takes a look at all of the news and views coing out of Sunday's race at Texas Motor Speedway, including:
-Larson led 256 of the 334 laps en route to his eighth win of the season, punching his ticket to the Championship 4 in three weeks at Phoenix.
-While Larson won big, several Playoff contenders had trouble in the Lone Star State.
-Chief among those now on the outside looking is Joey Logano, who is in a must win situation right now with two races left in the Round of 8.
-Something you don't often see on a 1.5-mile track is a superspeedway type multi-car crash, but that's just what happened on a lap 31 restart, when a spin by Bubba Wallace gathered up 15 cars off turn 2.
Plus, we'll preview this weekend's NASCAR action at Kansas Speedway.
