With 20 laps left in Sunday's Folds of Honor QuikTrip 500 at Atlanta Motor Speedway, most people were convinced Kyle Larson was on his way to his second NASCAR Cup Series victory of the 2021 season.

But one person who wasn't convinced was Ryan Blaney, who chased down and passed Larson with nine laps to go, and went on to become the sixth different winner in the first six races of the season.

Our Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at Sunday's action at AMS, including:

-Blaney chased down Larson on a day that it seemed almost impossible to be able to beat Larson.

-While Blaney celebrated his win, Larson had to settle for second after leading five times for 269 of the 325 laps, including a sweep of the first two race segments.

-Kurt Busch saw another promising day go south when he was turned into the wall on a restart.

-Chase Elliott was hoping for a strong hometown run, only to see it go away with a blown engine on lap 220.

--Plus we'll look at the latest news items and we'll preview the NASCAR race weekend on the dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway.

WDUN will carry live PRN Radio coverage of Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series Food City Dirt Race from Bristol Motor Speedway beginning at 2:30 pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.
