Grip Strip Podcast Episode 167 – Hot Takes and Lifetime Experiences

Technical problems, Phil bowling with the pros and Josh making one of his hottest takes ever…these are just a few of the things that took place on E167 of the GSP.  However, plenty of racing took place as well!  Scotty McLaughlin earned his first victory of 2023 at Barber in a tough battle versus pole-sitter Romain Grosjean and teammate Will Power.  McLaughlin’s three-stop strategy became optimal due to a questionable yellow along with Grosjean using up his P2P early. 

NASCAR saw a Truex family double, with Martin taking his first Cup win since 2021 on a Monday after his brother Ryan finally won his first XFinity race after over a decade in the series.  Josh lights the fire with his take on Ross Chastain after continued argy bargy involving the championship runner up from 2022.  Formula 1 at Azerbaijan saw Sergio Perez take his second win of 2023 after a fortuitous full safety car after teammate Max Verstappen pitted.  The Red Bull duo finished 1-2 with Charles Leclerc on the podium after starting on pole.  

Josh and Phil cover their respective NFL teams drafts and their thoughts on the other teams work as rookie mini camps and OTA’s take place.  The GSP Roundup covers WEC at Spa, MotoGP/Moto2 at Jerez, NHRA Charlotte Four-Wide, Supercars at Wanneroo, Indy NXT at Barber along with previews of WSBK at Barcelona and Formula E at Monaco. 

The crew previews and makes their picks for the Formula 1 Grand Prix of Miami along with NASCAR Cup and Trucks in Kansas prior to Josh’s Sim Segment and Show Close.
