Grip Strip Podcast Episode 160 – White Bread

Phil and Josh return for E160 of the GSP to recap White Bread William Byron’s second consecutive Cup Series win after a late-race caution screwed Kevin Harvick out of a 10th victory at Phoenix.  The guys discuss the Hendrick domination prior to what would transpire in the penalty phase.  Harvick takes the points lead and sets a record in the process while Tyler Reddick and Chase Briscoe finally get decent finishes in 2023. 

Sammy Smith added his name to the record books with his first career XFinity win the day before and solidifies both Joe Gibbs full-time cars into the playoffs after four races.  Phil and Josh cover other keys and the points for both series heading to Atlanta.  

NFL Free Agency saw the San Francisco 49ers make a blockbuster splash, signing Javon Hargrave away from the Philadelphia Eagles to bolster arguably the best defensive line in the NFL while the Jaguars lost tackle Jawaan Taylor to the Super Bowl winning Kansas City Chiefs.  The guys get into those two signings and much more across the league.  

The GSP Roundup is busy as always with recaps of NHRA in Gainesville, Extreme E in Saudi Arabia, Supercars at Newcastle, Supercross at Indianapolis and previews of the 12 Hours of Sebring for IMSA/1000 Miles of Sebring for WEC and F2 at Jeddah.

F1 returns for the Saudi Arabian Grand Prix and the question is who will finish behind Verstappen?  Phil and Josh preview, make picks and bring out the Tate Fogleman Algorithm for the super-speedway slot car racing that is current day Atlanta Motor Speedway. Josh provides plenty of info on the world of sim racing in his Sim Segment prior to Show Close.
