How Do NASCAR Drivers Go To The Bathroom?

Do Nascar drivers wear diapers during races in case they have to go to the bathroom?

Nascar races are pretty long, and the driver's don't have breaks unless there's a red flag. That means if they have to go to the bathroom, they can't leave their cars quickly for a bathroom break. I was thinking that maybe some of the drivers wear diapers during their races if they don't think they can hold it until the race is over. Is this true?

I am a big nascar fan and i don't think they do because after races all them are tired and drinking some sort of drink from all the sweat. It get very hot in that car. That's why you see them get plenty of water before and during a race. some races last 4 to 6 hours due to cautions. the only time the can get out of the car is they wreck,red flag or driver change if they can not compete which does happen if they are sick or injured from a previous race.

How is it that the Nascar drivers never have to use the bathroom?

The races last a good 4 hrs, how do they hold it for so long? Sometimes the drivers are sick or have the flu, yet never stop. MASaintFan's #1 answer is right, I contacted a driver to find out for sure. Although I am sure your #2 answer is right also, that may explain why they spray them with pop, champagne, etc. in victory lane!! lol

I don't know for sure, but:

1) These drivers get very hot and often dehydrated during these races. It's possible they just don't have to go.
2) On the occasions that they DO have to go, my guess is they go in their jumpsuits.

If you contact NASCAR and get an answer to this question, let us know!

What do Nascar drivers do when they have to go to the bathroom during a race?

This is a serious question. Are the drivers on a pure liquid diet for some time before each race? Are the suit built to allow them to go while driving? Both kinds?

#1~ Drivers sweat a lot during a race, and can easily get dehydrated. Therefore, you will not need to go.
#2~ They are in the car 3 and a half to 4 hours. I don't know about you, but I can much longer than that without having to pee!
#3~ If they DO have to go, they will go in their firesuit, or even their empty water bottle. The heat in the car causes it to dry quickly.

formula 1 vs nascar.?

formula 1 by far. nascar is only popular in the states because it originated in the u.s. but when u talk about skills and the cars, its formula 1. In nascar all u see is cars racing in oval tracks. sure there are f1 drivers in nascar bcuz they werent good enough for f1. montoya-released by mclaren. scott speed-released. someother guy- released. nascar is what 400 laps of nothing but pure boring.

400 Laps?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????? What are they trying to do to themselves, By proving Nothing!
Nascar=Simple Waste of Precious Time!

if the nascar drivers are in the cars driving for 3 to 4 hours how do they pee.... do they have a catheter?

To answer your question and #18 also.......but never knew how to ask before, I really like that, that is truly cute, for real, not trying to be smart back at you okay.

they do not have pee bottles or hoses in their suits, nor do they have on pampers to keep them dry..

I will tell you, a lot of drivers do use Depends, no really now.

if they pee, it stays in the depends and does not soak them, or their suits. this is for real.....several years ago, Rusty Wallace in #2, Millers car, told that a lot of drivers use Depends for this very reason......

they cannot wear Catheter's, as they are not approved by Nascar, if a bad wreck, it could cause serious injury to the drivers private parts.

and yes, it is true, Tony Stewart did poop his drawers years ago, due to a stomach virus he had.

and Kyle Petty also has done the same thing, due to a stomach virus.

so for all you inquiring minds, Depends is the #1 choice of drivers, but not all drivers use them.
