It took an extra day, but that didn't matter to Joey Logano, as he won the first NASCAR Cup Series race to be run on a dirt track in 50 years Monday afternoon at Bristol Motor Speedway.

Our Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at the race and at the latest news from the Bristol dirt this on this week's podcast, including:

-Logano took the lead with 61 laps to go, and then held off Denny Hamlin and Ricky Stenhouse, Jr. in overtime to win Monday's rain delayed Bristol Dirt Race.

-If you were looking for a feel good story coming out of Monday, you need look no further than fourth place finisher Daniel Suarez.

-Pre-race favorites Kyle Larson and Christopher Bell - both dirt track aces in their own rights - were both eliminated from having a chance at the win in a lap 52 multi-car crash.

-Martin Truex, Jr. came into the weekend with next to no dirt track experience.  After winning the rain delayed Truck Series race earlier in the day, he led the most laps in the Cup Series race, winning the first segment.

-There were a lot of questions going into Monday's race, including would it be a legitimate race or would it be a gimmick.  What's the verdict from our Hard Left Turn crew?

-Plus we'll take a look at the latest news going into the Easter holiday weekend.
