Grip Strip Podcast Episode 135 – Talking About Points

Phil and Josh return for E135 of the GSP to discuss all things NASCAR at Bristol with the first round of the Cup Series playoffs seeing Christopher Buescher winning for the first time in 222 races.  The guys get into all the mechanical and tire issues along with who is in and out after a chaotic race.  Phil and Josh go over the major move by Kyle Busch to RCR and what it means for him and for Tyler Reddick who’s in a lame-duck season before moving to 23XI. 

Gragson won his third consecutive race and heads into the XFinity playoffs with all the momentum but wrecked his title rival Ty Gibbs and Sheldon Creed in the process.  AJ Allmendinger benefitted most and took down the Regular Season crown along with the 15 playoff points.  Ty Majeski won the Truck Series event at Bristol for his first win and earned a spot in the Final Four. 

The crew gets into silly season news for IndyCar and F1, focusing on Palou, Rosenqvist, Herta and more before the GSP Roundup looks at MotoGP at Aragon and Motegi, NHRA at Maple Grove, WSBK at Barcelona and Extreme E in Chile. 

NFL Talk is next with both the Jaguars and 49ers taking big division victories (even with Trey Lance being knocked out for the year) along with Phil playing Josh in Fantasy Football.  Cup and XFinity are racing at Texas Motor Speedway and the guys preview those races along with picks before Josh’s Sim Segment and Show Close.
