Grip Strip Podcast Episode 141 – Down To The Wire

Phil and Josh return for Episode 141 of the GSP and open with football news since Josh’s Jacksonville Jaguars traded running back James Robinson prior to the show.  Josh goes off and that opens up a football discussion for both regarding their actual and fantasy teams. 

NASCAR had a tripleheader at Homestead which saw Kyle Larson dominate and win but he sent Martin Truex, Jr. on pit road late in the race to assist in his victory.  With one race left before Phoenix, the likes of Chris Bell and Chase Briscoe are in must win situations while Ryan Blaney and Hamlin are in the mix points wise.  William Clyde Elliott II, William Byron and Ross Chastain currently hold the other three spots behind Joey Logano.  Issues for 23XI after showing great speed along with other big drivers but AJ Allmendinger continues to have success with six consecutive top 10’s.

Gagson won his 8th XFinity race of 2022 to lock himself into the XFinity championship race at Phoenix while Keebler Gibbs is in good shape points wise.  Allmendinger, Justin Allgaier and Austin Hill have a chance via points but Sam Mayer and Brandon Jones need a win.  Ty Majeski won his second race in the Round of 8 while teammate Ben Rhodes got an assist from the remainder of ThorSport to advance into the Final 4 with Zane and Chandler Smith.

Formula 1 ran at Circuit of the Americas in front of a massive crowd and Lewis Hamilton led late into the US Grand Prix…but the usual result took place in the end.  Verstappen helped to win Red Bull their first Constructor’s Title since 2013 on the weekend that Red Bull co-founder Dietrich Mateschitz passed away.  The crew covers the race and all the movers heading into a doubleheader with Mexico. 

The GSP Roundup gets into MotoGP/Moto2 at Phillip Island, WRC Rally Spain, WSBK in Argentina and previews of Supercars at Surfers Paradise and NHRA at Las Vegas which will see the debut of Tony Stewart in a Top Alcohol Dragster.  Phil and Josh preview and make picks for the F1 Grand Prix of Mexico along with NASCAR Cup and XFinity at Martinsville plus who advances.  Josh gives us all the news on the iRacing and gaming area with the Sim Segment before Show Close.
