If you were looking for an exciting finish in Tuesday night's NASCAR SpeedWeeks opener, you should have been very entertained.

On this week's Hard Left Turn podcast, Brandon Reed, Pete McCole and Amy Henderson breaks down the happenings in the Busch Clash on the Daytona International Speedway infield road course, including:

-Kyle Busch bypassed Chase Elliott after Elliott and Ryan Blaney tangled in the final turn coming to the checkered flag to win his second career Busch Clash.

-Elliott and Blaney are good friends off the track, and both seemed to feel the last turn contact was just racing. Does our crew see it that way?

-Dirt and mud became a problem during the running of the race, as drivers cut the corner on the exit of the bus stop chicane.  That spot also caused leader Martin Truex, Jr. to crash with seven laps to go. 

-The JGR Toyotas were very strong on Tuesday night.  How does that look for them when the Cup Series returns to the road course layout in two weeks?

-Plus, we'll preview Thursday night's qualifying races and Sunday's Daytona 500.

WDUN will carry live MRN Radio coverage of Thursday night's NASCAR Cup Series Bluegreen Vacations Duel At Daytona from the Daytona International Speedway beginning at 6 pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.
