Grip Strip Podcast Episode 104 – Bowman Strikes Again and Googs Appears

Phil and Josh come back for another episode of the GSP with freelance writer and motorsports encyclopedia Josh Bolden aka Googs to talk grassroots racing and NASCAR.  The crew discusses Alex Bowman’s victory at Las Vegas and the ensuing butt hurt that took place from Kyle Busch.  Ross Chastain led the most laps and showed Trackhouse is ready to play with the Gen 7 car but Gibbs and Hendrick dominated the program per recent year trends. 

In XFinity, Keebler Gibbs gets his first win of 2022 while using Ryan Sieg up in the process.  JRM and Kaulig had good cars but nothing to show for them.  Trucks saw Chandler Smith continue his recent upswing with his third victory in the last seven races while Daytona winner Zane Smith finished second but got DQ’ed for lugnuts.  Defending champion Ben Rhodes won both stages in an unsponsored truck but got hooked by teammate Ty Majeski during the third stage. 

The Roundup goes over Kevin Magnussen’s return to F1 at Haas along with the start of Drive to Survive on Netflix.  MotoGP/Moto2 starts their season at Qatar plus Supercars at Sydney Motorsports Park to open their 2022 campaign, F2/F3 testing at Bahrain in preparation for their first race and SRX Driver announcements.  Phil and Josh discuss Phoenix and picks for the Cup and XFinity races before Josh’s Sim Segment and show close.
