PODCAST: Hard Left Turn Encore - The day The King came to town

This week, we present an encore presentation of a past Hard Left Turn podcast that remembers the day that a member of racing royalty came to town.

The theme of this particular show was Bucket Lists, and specifically what's on top AccessWDUN Motorsports Editor Brandon Reed's list.

Brandon checked off the top item on his list in August of 2013 when he did an interveiw with NASCAR Hall of Famer Richard Petty at the Northeast Georgia History Center in Gainesville, Georgia in August of 2013.

That same day, he was able to interview NASCAR Hall of Famer crew chief - and Richard Petty's cousin - Dale Inman.

As a bonus, we'll hear a few snippets from Brandon's 2012 interview with Georgia Racing Hall of Famer Pete Hamilton, who won the 1970 Daytona 500 driving for Petty Enterprises.  Hamilton passed away in March of 2017.
