Grip Strip Podcast Episode 113 – Bumps and Bruises

Phil and Josh return for E113 of the GSP to discuss the inaugural Miami Grand Prix for Formula 1 and a triple header throwback weekend at Darlington for NASCAR.  Verstappen wins again at a race that seemed to be more of a famous people social gathering than a motor race.  Ferrari’s took the other two podium spots while Mercedes showed signs of life early in the weekend to flounder once qualifying and the race happened.  Other key stories took place within the top 10 which the guys discuss.

Joey Logano moved William Byron for his first Cup win of 2022 on a weekend of first wins in a while, with Justin Allgaier (XFinity) and John Hunter Nemechek (Trucks) breaking dry spells in their respective series.  The controversy that ensued from the move Smokin’ Joe put on Byron was just one piece of the story at the Lady in Black, since Logano’s win makes 10 different winners in 12 races.  The guys go over who could add to the list and the possibility of a win not being enough to make the playoff.

The Roundup discusses WEC, W Series, MotoGP/Moto2, IMSA, and Formula E before Phil and Josh go into the GMR Grand Prix at Indianapolis for the IndyCar Series.  Can Chevy continue their domination of the season or will Honda finally respond? Who needs a big run as the series leads into the Indianapolis 500?  Can Penske’s team continue to dominate in Penske’s house?  The crew make their picks and dark horse selections before previewing the NASCAR doubleheader at Kansas. 

Can we see an 11th different winner this season in Cup?  Can a Chevy or Ford regular win a Truck race?  With a bunch of cookie cutter tracks on the horizon, how will the Gen 6 hold up?  Picks and dark horses are made leading into Josh’s Sim Segment discussing his attempt for the fixed setup Indy 500 and Show Close.
