Grip Strip Podcast Episode 64 – Motorsports In Full Swing

Phil and Josh return for Episode 64 of the GSP to discuss Checo Perez winning his second career F1 race and first for Red Bull in a somewhat chaotic Azerbaijan Grand Prix.  The guys go over how Sergio was able to outlast the two main title combatants, the crazy podium, and what this means for the rest of 2021.  Will the Mercedes camp be able to respond at Paul Ricard after two disastrous street course events?  How will Max Verstappen fare after another near-miss?

Yung Money’s living up to his name by dominating races but now it’s in Cup.  Larson’s first road course win at Snoreoma over two of his title rivals in Clyde and Truex puts the California kid in a position he hasn’t been since his K&N days.  Is Kyle Larson the favorite with 10 races left in the regular/20 overall?  Phil goes off on McDriver after he whines about how he was raced by Bowman and especially Suarez. 

XFinity at Mid-Ohio saw AJ Allmendinger get his second win of 2021 and keep himself in contention while Austin Cindric continues to pile up points towards a possible repeat championship.  The race presented a unique top-10 finishing result which the guys go over.

A busy GSP Roundup covers MotoGP/Moto2 in Catalunya, F2 in Baku, IMSA and Indy Lights in Detroit, WSBK at Misano, WEC in Portugal and BTCC in Snetterton.  After this, SRX is previewed and discussed with their first race at Stafford.

Phil and Josh preview the IndyCar doubleheader at Detroit and make their picks and darkhorse selections plus review the rookie battle.  Finally, NASCAR at Texas with a tripleheader ending with the farcical All-Star Race which will be the merciful end of Goosage.  Picks for Trucks, XFinity, The Open and the All-Star Race itself provided.
