Grip Strip Podcast Episode 163 – First Time, Long Time

Phil and Josh return for a jam packed E163 of the GSP prior to Easter weekend.  The crew discusses the battle between eventual winner Josef Newgarden and points leader Pato O’Ward at TMS for IndyCar along with other keys leading to Long Beach.

Larson wins his first Cup race of 2023 at Richmond after Byron dominates again while Chandler Smith thanks his smoking hot wife after winning his first XFinity race the day before at RIR.  Carson Hocevar gets over the hump in the Craftsman Truck Series by assisting dominant race leader Nick Sanchez into a three truck pileup with Zane Smith and Christian Eckes at the end of a Texas dumpster fire.

F1 saw Verstappen win but Lewis Hamilton takes a hard earned second place with Fred Alonso continuing his consistency with a third consecutive podium leading into the first long break of the season.  Checo Perez came from tailback to get a top five, McLaren finally earned points and Ferrari continues to be Ferrari. 

A lean GSP Roundup covers F2/F3 at Albert Park, Supercars at Albert Park, MotoGP/Moto2 in Argentina and NHRA at Pomona before Phil and Josh preview and make picks for Trucks and Cup at the Bristol Dirt Race.  Josh lets us know what’s going on in the world of sim racing and gaming in his Sim Segment prior to Show Close.
