On the special Sunday Morning edition of Talking in Circles, we talk about the Irwin Tools Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway in Bristol, Tennessee. Joey Logano wins his 6th career NASCAR Sprint Cup Series race, and third of the season, and has made himself a contender in this Championship race. It's the first time ever, that Ford Motor Company has swept the weekend in Bristol.
Joey won the race on the final restart passing Matt Kenseth on older tires, but the new rubber paid off for Logano and he was able to work his way around the 20 and go to victory lane.
Denny Hamlin was leading the race on lap 156, before contact with second place running Kevin Harvick sent Hamlin's car into the inside retaining wall, ending his day, and afterwards Hamlin threw his HANS device at Harvick. We'll talk about that move in perticular and why it was okay, and also why Harvick was running so hard, so early.
Kyle Busch had a tough night in Bristol. Kyle got caught up in an early wreck, and for the past 5 weeks, has had nothing but bad luck, with good race cars. This lead crew chief Dave Rogers to tell Kyle to "park you whiney little ass, and get on the bus." Team owner, Joe Gibbs has downplayed the comments and seems to think that it's no big deal.
Also, Greg Biffle has a new sponsor, and sticking with Roush, is Jimmy Fennig going to step down?
All of that on Talking in Circles. Enjoy the show everyone!

Patti Rodisch and Dustin Parks will look back at the Bristol weekend, a race that honored Steve Byrnes and his battle against cancer, but then will turn to the Richmond weekend, the first weekend following the tragic passing of Byrnes on April 21. These two will look back at his greatest moments in the sport as a broadcaster, and how much he loved the sport.

Patti and Dustin will also review all the action at both races, and then look ahead to what looms...the monster that is Talladega. Tune in at 6:30 p.m. ET/5:30 p.m. CT for this very special episode.
