Grip Strip Podcast Episode 127 – What’s a Contract to You?

Phil is back with special guest host Joe Passero of Fansided/Beyond the Flag to discuss all the motorsports action from the previous weekend on E127 of the GSP.  The crew covers Tyler Reddick’s second Cup win of the 2022 season at the Indianapolis Road Course.  The driving standards and respect are low but it has become par for the course.  At the same time, the points situation becomes clearer as the series moves to Michigan. 

AJ Allmendinger dominated in the XFinity Series and added much needed points to his lead in his chase for the regular season title plus 15 playoff points.  The Truck Series returned to Lucas Oil Indianapolis Raceway Park for the first time in a decade with Grant Enfinger getting a massive win in the series playoff opener.

IndyCar was part of the Indianapolis weekend once again, with Alexander Rossi breaking a three-year winless streak with a strong performance but gets penalized after for a ballast infraction which stinks like the great TGBB.  Formula 1 drove into their summer break with Max Verstappen getting another victory from 10th and solidifying a World Driver’s Championship in 2022 in the process with Ferrari doing their typical *&^% stepping. 

Mercedes takes a double podium with Sir Lewis Hamilton’s momentum continuing and George Russell getting his first career pole.  Outside of the racing itself, Sebastian Vettel announced his retirement which set off a chain reaction of moves and contract issues for drivers that will continue to be discussed.  

In the GSP Roundup, F2/F3/W Series at Hungary, Formula E in London, Supercars at The Bend, World Superbike in the Czech Republic, IMSA at Road America and MotoGP/Moto2 at Silverstone.  Phil and Joe preview the Cup and XFinity racing at Michigan International Speedway with picks along with IndyCar on the streets of Nashville.
