Where do NASCAR drivers go pee? 6

This question came up when Bob and I were chatting at work about kayaking across the lake and having to urinate in a water bottle. We wondered how NASCAR drivers go pee since they’re in the car for 3 or 4 hours at a time.

I just assumed they would hold it in until after the race, but apparently there’s the odd time when the drivers can’t hold it in, so they just do it. That’s the unofficial consensus online anyway via Yahoo Answers.

It’s funny to me to think about grown men peeing in their own pants. I guess if you get paid enough it’s worth it, and nobody will ever know about it because the fireproof suits would conceal the evidence nicely. “So how does it feel to win the Daytona 500 Dale Jr?” “Well, it was a good one, the car was in tip-top condition, the pit crew was amazing, and with only 5 laps to go, I couldn’t hold it in anymore so I pissed in my seat. They don’t call it a bucket seat for nothin’!”

    Barry says,
    They try not to drink too much beer before the race!!
    But seriously, it is usually over 140 degrees in the car, so they sweat profusely while they drive and have very little fluids left in their bodies.(they do have water bottles in their car during the race). They also are concentrating every second, so they wouldn’t even know they had to go until there was a caution or the race was over.

    When Charles Lindbergh flew alone non-stop across the atlantic, he was in the single-seat plane for 33 hours. He admitted to a lot more than peeing his pants. The crowds of french gathered at his landing were quite happy to lift him up on their shoulders the moment he got off the plane :)

    Well when you put it that way Kam, a little drizzle in your NASCAR suit must be a walk in the park compared to Lindbergh’s dilemma ;)

    Barry, I was thinking the same thing as you that they can probably hold it in, but you have to think that there must be the odd time when they can’t hold it in ;)

    I really want Kyle Bush to tell me what he does during a race if he has to go to P P during a race
