Grip Strip Podcast Episode 79 – Playoffs! We‘re Talking About Playoffs?!

Phil and Josh get into championship discussions for IndyCar at Laguna Seca and NASCAR with a Bristol tripleheader regarding said playoffs.  The guys go over Colton Herta’s domination at Herta’s House while Alex Palou got one step closer to his first IndyCar title.  They cover all the title combatants along with outstanding performances throughout the field. 

Bristol meant the cutoff for Cup and Trucks which saw Larson win again and Chandler Smith takes his first Truck win.  The most interesting finish though was in XFinity with AJ Allmendinger getting destroyed but still winning the regular-season title over Austin Cindric.

The GSP Roundup covers MotoGP/Moto2 at Misano, Indy Lights at Laguna, F2/F3 preview at Sochi, and WSBK at Catalunya and Jerez.  Phil and Josh preview the Russian GP and whether Max Verstappen will continue his dominance or can Lewis Hamilton respond in the tight world driver’s championship battle.  They also cover the IndyCar finale at the historic Grand Prix of Long Beach and whether anyone has a chance to pass Alex Palou for the title along with race win contenders.  NASCAR races at Las Vegas with another triple-header with picks and previews.

The guys cover their NFL teams and fantasy football which is much better for the duo before Josh’s Sim Segment and the show close.
