Going into Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series race at Martinsville Speedway, there had been seven different winners on the season.  But thanks to Martin Truex, Jr., that's where the streak ends.

Our Hard Left Turn crew is set to take a look at the action out of Martinsville in this week's show, including:

-Truex, Jr. bypassed Joe Gibbs Racing teammate Denny Hamlin late in the going in Sunday's rain delayed Blue Emu 500, and went on to score his second victory of the season.

-Hamlin led 276 laps on the day, and looked to have his first win of the season in hand, but with over the closing laps, his car was overtaken by Truex, Jr.

-Ryan Blaney turned in another impressive run, leading three times for 157 laps while winning the first and second steps. But a pit road miscue doomed his chances to win, leaving him with an 11th place finish.

-Earlier in the day on Sunday, short track ace Josh Berry edged out Ty Gibbs to score his first career NASCAR Xfinity Series win in just his 13th start.

And we'll preview this weekend's NASCAR action at Richmond Raceway.

WDUN will carry live MRN Radio coverage of Sunday's NASCAR Cup Series Toyota Owners 400 from Richmond Raceway beginning at 2 pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.
