Grip Strip Podcast Episode 84 – F1 Up, NASCAR Down

Phil and Josh come back for Episode 84 of the GSP to go over the epic United States Grand Prix battle between Max Verstappen and Lewis Hamilton.  Is MV’s defeat of LH at one of his best tracks the turning point for the 2021 World Driver’s Championship?  Ferrari bested McLaren in the battle for 3rd in Constructors while Daniel Ricciardo gets to live a dream driving Dale Earnhardt’s Blue Goose at CoTA.  The guys discuss F1’s place in America considering how well received the weekend was in Austin relative to the past and other motorsports series. 

In contrast, the NASCAR teams had a relatively quiet weekend at Kansas.  Larson wins again in Cup, Ty Gibbs gets his 4th XFinity win while also locking up the ARCA title and the cutoff battles tighten up with just one race to go at Martinsville.  Phil and Josh go over recent testing news in IndyCar and Sports Cars before the GSP Roundup which covers MotoGP/Moto2, Extreme E, W Series, Supercars, WEC and NHRA.

The guys preview the NASCAR triple-header at Martinsville with win picks and who will advance to the final four at Phoenix before getting into Football/Fantasy Football, Josh’s Sim Segment and the show close.
