Grip Strip Podcast Episode 86 – Championship Time

With the motorsports season quickly coming to a close, Phil and Josh have plenty to discuss on E86 of the GSP.  The guys start with Max Verstappen’s latest dominant performance at the Mexican GP as he gets closer to his first World Driver’s Championship and possibly Red Bull’s first Constructor’s Title since 2013.  Phil and Josh discuss the issues for Mercedes and other key storylines from the midfield.

NASCAR finished their 2021 season by crowning three new champions in the national touring series.  Kyle Larson ends one of the most dominant seasons with a 10th victory and his first Cup Series title but it wasn’t easy.  At least three of the four championship drivers had a chance during the day.  Daniel Hemric used the last lap, last corner bump-and-run to move Austin Cindric for his first XFinity win and the championship.  Ben Rhodes didn’t win the race but definitely won the party after a drunken post-race celebration as he becomes a Truck Series champ in his sixth full season. 

The Roundup covers WEC at Bahrain II, Supercars at Sydney II and III, MotoGP and Moto2 at Algarve II along with the Valencia finale, IMSA Petit Le Mans and Kyle Kirkwood signing with AJ Foyt Racing to drive the iconic No. 14.   Phil and Josh preview the Sao Paulo Grand Prix with picks along with what Lewis Hamilton/Mercedes must do to stop the Red Bull tide.  Football/Fantasy Football is discussed along with Josh’s Sim Segment before the show close.
