Grip Strip Podcast Episode 157 – NASCAR is Back

After a busy weekend at Daytona to open up the 2023 NASCAR season, Phil and Josh are back to cover all the action on E157 of the GSP.  OH RICHARD (Ricky Stenhouse, Jr.) broke a 199-race winless streak by capturing the 65th Daytona 500.  The race actually went 530 miles due to overtime but the JTG-Daugherty driver is now immortalized as a 500 champion along with a playoff berth.  The guys get into the race itself, the wrecks, standouts and picks made before moving into XFinity and Trucks, which saw repeat winners in Austin Hill and Zane Smith respectively. 

F1 is gearing up for their only pre-season test of 2023 prior to the season opener at Bahrain in a couple weeks and IndyCar is also looking towards their opener at St. Petersburg, so Phil updates any pertinent news items prior to a full preview next week for both series.  The GSP Roundup is short and sweet with Formula E in Cape Town, South Africa for the first time along with WSBK opening their 2023 campaign at Phillip Island in Australia. 

Phil and Josh preview what likely is the last race at Auto Club Speedway for Cup and XFinity and make their picks for both races before Josh covers his exploits in the iRacing Daytona 500 (both fixed and open setup attempts) and the show close.
