In one of the most bizarre endings to any NASCAR Cup Series All-Star Race in history, Ryan Blaney thought he had won the event at Texas Motor Speedway on Sunday night, only to find he had to do it all over again.

On this week's Hard Left Turn, our regular crew - with special guest Joe VanHoose - talks about the crazy ending to Sunday's race, among other items, including:

-Blaney had to overcome having taken his window net down to hold off Denny Hamlin in an overtime finish to win the NASCAR Cup All-Star Race.

-Tires were an issue again this week, with tire trouble eliminating the early favorites from the race.

-Meanwhile, at Indianapolis, Scott Dixon turned a blazing fast lap to take the pole in one of the fastest qualifying session in Indianapolis 500 history.

-With the Indy 500 on tap for Sunday, Jimmie Johnson has been among the most impressive drivers so far at the Brickyard.  What will we see in Sunday's running of the "Greatest Spectacle In Racing?"

Plus, we'll preview both the Indy 500 and the Coca-Cola 600 at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
