Grip Strip Podcast Episode 153 – 38th Special

Phil and Josh return for E153 of the GSP with more NFL Playoff talk and a preview of the Rolex 24.  With the Jaguars exiting the playoffs at the hands of Mahomes, Josh was disappointing but knows the future is bright for his team after a lean period for the organization.  San Francisco has now won 12 consecutive games going back to a loss versus Kansas City in October, giving Phil a healthy jolt on his birthday week.  The crew discusses Divisional weekend along with previews of both championship games with picks.

The 61st Rolex 24 at Daytona takes place this weekend with the GTP nomenclature returning to IMSA for the first time since 1992.  Nine cars from four manufacturers will take the start on Saturday, looking for reliability and the opportunity to earn overall accolades along with some nice Rolex watches.  Each class is covered along with some familiar names for NASCAR fans racing in the Michelin Pilot Challenge.

Over the past week, there’s been plenty of NASCAR news, so Josh and Phil get into the key stories with the Clash only a couple weeks away.  One big topic involved odds for winning the 2023 Cup championship, which had some interesting lines.

The GSP Roundup looks at Sebastian Ogier’s record-breaking ninth victory at Rally Monte Carlo, Supercross in San Diego, Nitro Rallycross at Trois Riviere, along with previews of Formula E in Saudi Arabia and the Race of Champions.  Josh gives us the latest news from the world of sim racing during the Sim Segment before the Show Close.
