Busch admitted that he battled heat stroke conditions and had elevated carbon monoxide readings after Sunday’s race at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
He hit the wall multiple times and finished 19th in the race. He was six laps behind the leaders of the race. Busch is worried about his condition instead of the 12 points that he’s behind with two races left in this round of the NASCAR playoffs.
Once the car he was driving stopped on pit road, he got out of the car and walked to the grass. Then, he laid down and medical personnel rushed to his aid. They put ice on him and attempted to cool his body down.
He was on the ground for approx. 10 minutes. Then, he got up and walked to an ambulance.
“I got heat soaked and felt like I had a heat stroke just with being inside the race car for 200 laps with the crush panels knocked out of it,” he said. “Coasting under caution, you could feel it being about 50 degrees hotter inside the car. It just got so hot that it felt like you were going to puke.”
