Posted 9:20PM on Thursday 4th August 2022 ( 4 days ago )

The only thing that can be expected when the NASCAR Cup Series visits the Indianapolis Motor Speedway anymore is that you can't anticipate anything.

Our Hard Left Turn crew looks at the twists and turns that came from the second visit to the Brickyard's infield road course, including:

-For the second straight year, the end of the NASCAR Cup Series race at Indy came down to a wild, anything goes finish, this time with Tyler Reddick coming out on top.

-There's a strong movement afoot to try to convince NASCAR to move back to the 2.5-mile oval layout instead of the infield road course.

-Even the IndyCar series wasn't immune to the craziness, as winner Alexander Rossi and Andretti Autosport were heavily penalized afterwards.

-Short track racing returned to the historic North Wilkesboro Speedway this week.  Special guest Joe VanHoose has a look.

Plus, we'll preview this weekend's races in Michigan.
