Posted 9:28PM on Monday 29th June 2020 ( 5 days ago )

It was a history making weekend at Pocono Raceway, as the NASCAR Cup Series ran two races at the same track on the same weekend for the very first time.

Our Hard Left Turn crew will catch you up on all of it, as Brandon Reed, Pete McCole and Amy Henderson takes a look at the race weekend, including:

-Kevin Harvick used pit strategy to get the lead late and go on to the victory on Saturday, while Denny Hamlin reversed the strategy for the win on Sunday.

-Thanks to the weather, it proved to be a very busy race weekend at the "Tricky Triangle."  But did it work?

-Speaking of a busy weekend, that's just what we have on tap this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

WDUN will carry live IMS Radio Network coverage of the NASCAR weekend at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, starting with Saturday's NASCAR Xfinity Series Pennzoil 150 at 2:30 pm on 102.9 FM and streaming live on AccessWDUN.  Coverage continues on Sunday with the NASCAR Cup Series Brickyard 400 at 3 pm on 102.9 FM, AM 550 and streaming live on AccessWDUN.
