Grip Strip Podcast Episode 114 – Old School, New School

Phil and Josh discuss Kurt Busch’s first win for 23XI at Kansas along with Colton Herta’s win at the Indy Road Course in the IndyCar Series among many events on the GSP.  Toyota and Hendrick Motorsports dominated the race at Kansas but the Jordan Brand 45 was in a class of his own…even with defending series champ Kyle Larson giving him a tough battle.  On the flip side, Ford’s are struggling mightily with speed and performance outside of Ryan Blaney.  Issues with BadYear tires and other anomalies are discussed by the guys.

Herta’s win in a crazy race which saw changing weather conditions provides great momentum leading into the Indianapolis 500 while Will Power won another pole and took the points lead.  Major points runners had a tough day while other drivers who have struggled had a strong performance. 

The Roundup discusses IMSA, MotoGP/Moto2, Formula E, Supercars, World Superbike, NHRA and F2/F3/W Series before leading into a Spanish Grand Prix preview.  Can Charles Leclerc respond to the momentum of Verstappen and Red Bull?  How about Carlos Sainz getting his first win or pole on home soil?  What will Mercedes have up their sleeve with the official opening of the European season? 

Picks and dark horses are made before leading into Indy 500 practice, qualifying and entry list discussion.  Phil and Josh make their picks for the front row and the last row with Josh dusting off the algorithm.  NASCAR’s All Star Race will take place once again at Texas for whatever reason.  Picks for who will advance into the race and who will win the All-Star race in their convoluted format are made.  

Josh discusses his run in the iRacing Indy 500 along with playing clips from the race feed itself before Show Close.
