PODCAST: Hard Left Turn - Byron takes victory at Martinsville

It may not have been the most exciting night thus far in the NASCAR Cup Series season, but if you ask William Byron, a win is all the excitement you need.

Our Hard Left Turn crew takes a look at the Martinsville race weekend, including:

-Byron dominated the second half of Saturday night's race at the tight half-mile raceway, and held off Joey Logano on an overtime restart to score his second victory of the season.

-There's only one way to describe the race on Saturday night - dull.  Even an overtime finish couldn't spice it up.  So was it the weather, the tires, the lack of extra parts for the Next Gen car, or something else that made it so.

-Friday night's NASCAR Xfinity Series ended with a fight on pit road, and a subsequent fine for Ty Gibbs.

-It was also a hard weekend for former NASCAR Cup Series driver Jimmie Johnson, who came away with a fractured hand after a practice crash.  Things just went downhill from there.

Plus, we'll preview this weekend's action on the dirt at Bristol Motor Speedway. 

WDUN will carry live PRN Radio coverage of Sunday night's NASCAR Cup Series Food City Dirt Race at Bristol Motor Speedway beginning at 6pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.
