Phil and Josh come back for Episode 58 of the Grip Strip Podcast to discuss Colton Herta’s dominant win at St. Pete which Josh saw live and in-person. Josh provides his thoughts relative to other series he’s seen plus the guys discuss other winners and losers from the weekend. NASCAR continues to provide idiocy and Talladega didn’t disappoint in that department.
While Brad Keselowski won the Cup race somehow over DiBenedetto and others, the lack of respect shown in driving standards and unnecessary blocking/wrecks show had Phil seething. Jeb Burton’s first win in years connects with Kaulig announcing a move to Cup in 2022.
The absolutely farcical All-Star Race format was announced and the guys went off during the Roundup. F1 Sprint Races, MotoGP, Formula E and WEC were also hit along with the loss of the Canadian GP for a second consecutive year. Picks for Portugal, Texas and Kansas were made too.
Phil and Josh finish with NFL Draft talk…Josh’s excitement about Trevor Lawrence and whoever else the Jags are getting is brought down to earth with Phil’s dread of the 9ers possibly taking Mac Jones and other needs.
