Grip Strip Podcast Episode 62: Indy 500 Preview, CoTA Cluster and Monaco Procession

Phil and Josh return for Episode 62 of the GSP to discuss qualifying and previewing the 105th Indy 500 which saw Scott Dixon qualify on pole for a 4th time.  Can Dixon finally secure that elusive second victory? Who are the favorites and wild cards in a generally wide open field? 

Formula 1 returned to the Principality of Monaco which saw Max Verstappen take a lights to flag victory after Charles Leclerc’s crash in qualifying cost him a chance at winning his home race.  Mercedes was noticeably terrible with Lewis Hamilton being non-existent and the team screwing Bottas on pit road. 

NASCAR at CoTA was generally a cluster due to rain – especially for the Cup race which had multiple wrecks caused due to spray on the backstretch. The guys discuss safety and what can be changed considering how awful the race and management of the conditions was.  The GSP Roundup goes over F2 at Monaco, WSBK at Aragon and Estoril, WRC at Portugal, MotoGP at Mugello, Supercars at Winton and Extreme E in Senegal. 

Before Josh’s Sim Segment, they preview the Charlotte triple header and who stands out on another cookie-cutter.
