The Joe Gibbs Racing teams have stepped up to win the first two races of the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs, with Martin Truex, Jr. winning on Saturday night at Richmond Raceway.

Our Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at all the action and news out of Richmond, including:

-Truex, Jr. got out in front of Denny Hamlin, and held off a late race charge to score his fourth win of the season.

-For the second striaght week, Hendrick Motorsports did not have the best of weeks, although Kyle Larson locked himself into the Round of 12.

-Kurt Busch saw a good night go south, but he is still above the cutoff line going to Bristol.  Who is in the danger zone going to Thunder Valley?

-On Tuesday night, NASCAR announced that the pre-season Clash will move to the Los Angeles Coliseum on a custom built 1/4-mile track two weeks before the Daytona 500.

Plus, we'll preview this weekend's Round of 16 cutoff race at Bristol.
