Grip Strip Podcast Episode 120 – Hot Enough For You?

With Father’s Day in the rear view, Phil and Josh return for E120 of the GSP with regular contributor Joe Passero of Fansided/Beyond The Flag and newly hired at New Egypt Speedway working on media content for the track.  The guys go over Verstappen’s win at the Canadian Grand Prix along with the performances of Carlos Sainz and Lewis Hamilton who finished on the podium. 

Issues for Checo Perez and Charles Leclerc allowed Verstappen to add to his championship lead but there may be more competition as we lead towards the summer break.  Phil and Josh also go over key news items prior to the British GP. 

The panel discussed Todd Gilliland’s first truck win for his father’s team, the quality of the racing, the track and presentation of the Knoxville dirt race before providing thoughts on the passing of Bruton Smith and other NASCAR news.

This week’s Roundup covered V8 Supercars, SRX, MotoGP/Moto2, IMSA (along with news of Lola returning and the Porsche 963 LMDH) and Rally Kenya before everyone discussed the XFinity and Cup races this coming weekend at Nashville along with the return of NBC to cover the balance of the season. 

The Truck race took place while recording so thoughts about that will be sprinkled in along with Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals.  Josh gives us the world of iRacing and other games in the Sim Segment before the Show Close.
