Grip Strip Podcast Episode 128 - Winning Never Gets Old
Phil and Josh are back for E128 of the GSP to discuss veterans getting back to victory lane. Kevin Harvick broke a 65-race winless streak with a timely victory at Michigan International Speedway, giving the Cup Series 15 winners so far with three races to go in the regular season.
The guys go over the race, Bubba Wallace's continued upswing (with his first pole), and other concerns for the likes of Ryan Blaney and Martin Truex, Jr. who are now in peril to make the playoffs while running 2nd and 4th in season-long points. On the XFinity side, Ty Gibbs continues to show his skills with his fifth victory of 2022 and fighting off the JRM brigade in the process. For the drivers contending for the playoffs, all seemed to do well leading into the last off week of the 2022 season.
In Nashville, The Iceman Scott Dixon broke his tie with Mario Andretti earning his 53rd IndyCar win. In the process, Dixon also cut his points deficit to series leader Will Power down to six points with three races to go. While the rookies had their moments along with plenty of veterans, frustration reigned supreme for Power, Marcus Ericsson, Josef Newgarden and many others who were affected in a carnage-filled race.
For a condensed GSP Roundup, Phil covers the IMSA race at Road America, MotoGP/Moto2 at Silverstone, Formula E's season finale with a doubleheader in Seoul and NHRA at Topeka before the guys preview Cup and Trucks at Richmond International Raceway along with picks. Phil and Josh go over football with the NFL preseason starting and Josh brings back the Sim Segment after a week away.
