Grip Strip Podcast Episode 125 – Big Moves and Attitudes

Phil and Josh return to discuss IndyCar, F1 and many other series on E125 (or 124.5, depending on who you ask) of the GSP.  The guys discuss the news of NASCAR Cup and an IMSA series racing on the streets of Chicago and what it means for NASCAR in general.  After that, Phil and Josh cover Alex Palou being employed by two teams in IndyCar – Chip Ganassi Racing and McLaren Racing.  What does this mean for AMSP, CGR and the possibility of it leading to an F1 ride?  Who would replace Palou at Ganassi? 

Speaking of Ganassi, his greatest driver ever is Scott Dixon and “The Iceman” added to his legacy by tying Mario Andretti with 52 wins after his triumph at Toronto.  The guys go over Dixon’s performance that brings him back into the title picture while pole-sitter Colton Herta dealt with balaclava issues but still finished second.  Marcus Ericsson and fellow countryman Felix Rosenqvist had solid weekends on the streets of Toronto.  Graham Rahal had his best run of 2022 as RLL Racing leads into a big weekend at Iowa Speedway.

In the GSP Roundup, Phil goes over SRX at I-55 Speedway where Tony Stewart won another race on dirt and leads into the season finale at Sharon Speedway, WSBK at Donington, IMSA GT at Lime Rock, NHRA at Denver, Formula E in Brooklyn, and previews of F2 & W Series at Paul Ricard. 

Phil and Josh preview the French Grand Prix F1 race along with the doubleheader at Iowa Speedway for IndyCar before Josh’s Sim Segment and Show close.
