For much of the 2021 season, it seemed like if it wasn't for bad luck, Aric Almirola would have had no luck at all. But that changed on Sunday, as he charged to the victory at New Hampshire Motor Speedway.
Our Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at all the action coming out of the "Magic Mile" on Sunday, including:
-Almirola charged past Brad Keselowski, then held off a late challenge from Christopher Bell to score the win and lock himself into the Playoffs with just four races left in the "regular season."
-Sunday's race was plagued by rain, with a the showers causing a crash on lap six that took out leader Kyle Busch.
-After dominating much of the summer, the Hendrick Chevy teams suddenly seem to be back where they were previously - looking for speed.
-In one of the worst kept secrets in NASCAR, Brad Keselowski announced Tuesday that he is moving to Rousch Fenway Racing as a driver and in an ownership role.
-The NASCAR scene being off for the next two weeks for the Olympic break. Could this "summer break" become a regular part of the schedule?
