Grip Strip Podcast Episode 130 – Teammates Tussle/Battle of the Heroes

Phil and Josh return for E130 of the GSP to cover the battle between Yung Money Kyle Larson and his teammate William Clyde Elliott II aka the Most Popular Driver and usually called Chase.  The two Hendrick teammates got into it on the last restart at Watkins Glen which saw Larson drive off to his second Cup win of 2022 after winning the day before in XFinity. 

Larson ending up being the beneficiary of an incident between Ty Gibbs and William Byron who dominated the race. The crew discusses the incidents, the points implications and the debut of 2007 F1 World Champion Kimi Raikkonen in the Project 91/Trackhouse ride among seven international drivers. 

At WWTR Raceway/Gateway, Josef Newgarden won his fifth race of 2022 and reinserted himself into the title battle with teammate (newly tied with Mario Andretti with 67 career IndyCar poles) Will Power with just two races to go in the 2022 IndyCar season.  Newgarden battled fellow Bus Bro and teammate Scott McLaughlin for the win but the revelation was Illinois rookie David Malukas, who swooped around the outside of Scotty to take his first podium and a runner-up in a great night for Dale Coyne Racing. 

The Roundup covers NHRA at Brainerd, MotoGP/Moto2 in Austria, Supercars at Sandown, F2/F3 at Spa and IMSA GT at VIR before Phil and Josh previewed F1 returning to Spa for the second half of their season with previews and picks.  NASCAR Cup and XFinity will be racing at Daytona this weekend with the Cup Series having their regular season finale.  The guys make their picks and Josh brings back the Tate Fogleman Algorithm to make a shocking pick that rendered Phil speechless. 

Phil and Josh go over the FallBrawl fantasy football league draft and week two of the NFL preseason before Josh’s Sim Segment and Show Close.
