Grip Strip Podcast Episode 109 – ”Josh Ran Across My Right Front, Bob…Didn’t You See It?!”

Phil and Josh return for E109 of the GSP to discuss Charles Leclerc’s second win of 2022 along with Josef Newgarden in IndyCar and William Byron in Cup.  The guys go over the Australian GP which saw the defending World Champion fall out while running second and other key story lines including Lewis Hamilton’s overheating issues.  At Long Beach, Newgarden gave Penske their third straight victory to start the 2022 campaign while Colton Herta crashed out of a possible victory.  Alex Palou is not going away either after a podium finish in the second most important race on the calendar.  

On the NASCAR side at Martinsville, Byron won two of three races on the weekend and became the first repeat winner of the 2022 Cup Series season in a race that saw zero on track passes for the lead.  Phil and Josh go over what could be done to improve the product since Martinsville will have an important place in how the final four is set.  While Bruckshot Jones won the XFinity race, Keebler Gibbs sucker punching Sam Mayer while keeping his helmet on is the main story from the race itself.  Byron won the Truck race for Spire while KBM continues their dominance.

The GSP Roundup covers MotoGP/Moto2 at CoTA, IMSA at Long Beach, Supercars at Albert Park, World Superbike at Aragon, Formula E in Rome and MotoAmerica at CoTA before Josh’s Sim Segment and show close.
