Phil and Josh return for Episode 75 of the GSP and initially discuss the loss of motorsports journalistic legend Robin Miller. The guys give their thoughts and memories of Miller while going over some of the best things that Robin brought to sport over 50+ years of involvement.
Miller would’ve had plenty to say about the IndyCar race at Gateway, which saw Josef Newgarden win and Pato O’Ward retake the points lead. Chip Ganassi Racing has a nightmare race and plenty more argy-bargy took place which brings up the issues of driving standards and respect among the competitors.
NASCAR Cup at Michigan was a Hendrick benefit till Young Ryan Blaney snuck through on a late restart to take his second win of 2021. AJ Allmendinger in XFinity at Michigan and Sheldon Creed in Trucks won with Allmendinger closing the gap on Cindric in the regular-season points while Creed won the Playoff opener for Trucks at Gateway.
A busy segment of the GSP Roundup goes over the 24 Hours of Le Mans, WSBK at Navarra, Indy Lights at Gateway, DTM at the Nurburgring, F3 & W Series at Spa, MotoGP/Moto2 at Silverstone, and Extreme E in Greenland.
Phil and Josh preview the return of Formula 1 at the Belgian Grand Prix with a focus on Verstappen vs. Hamilton along with McLaren vs. Ferrari and the other key battles with picks. They also preview the Cup regular-season finale at Daytona in the Coke Zero 400 and XFinity with the Wawa 250. Regular football and FallBrawl Fantasy Football talk precede Josh’s sim segment before we close for the week.
