The average NASCAR race lasts a little over three hours.

Drivers remain in their cars throughout the entire race.

And NASCAR fans could not believe what driver Denny Hamlin admitted to doing last week at the Atlanta Motor Speedway.

NASCAR is popular

Americans love professional sports.

NASCAR is one of the most popular sports in America, with more than 80 million fans across the United States.

According to the marketing firm American Media Group, “NASCAR ranks #1 among the major sports in sponsor loyalty – higher than the NFL, NHL, MLB, and the NBA combined.”

Many of NASCAR’s most popular drivers also host popular podcasts where they interact with fans of the sport.

One of those drivers is Denny Hamlin, who drives the number 11 Toyota for Joe Gibbs Racing.

Hamlin has racked up 51 wins in his career.

In 2010, he finished as runner-up to Jimmie Johnson in the championship standings.

On a recent episode of his podcast Actions Detrimental, Hamlin discussed his performance at the Ambetter Health 400 in Atlanta.

With over 260 laps and 10 caution flags, this year’s Ambetter Health 400 turned into a test of endurance for drivers.

But Hamlin admitted he failed the endurance test when it comes to using the bathroom.

“Peed my seat”

“For the first time in my whole career, 19 years, peed my seat,” he said on his podcast. “I was hurting,” he continued. “I was so thirsty the second half of the race, but I couldn’t drink any more because my body, I was just sitting there in my seat saying, ‘Let it go, let it go. And I just couldn’t let it go.”

However, that soon changed for the NASCAR legend.

“And then as soon as I got the first dribble, boom,” Hamlin said. “It was warm, and then it was cold,” he continued. “I never felt what it felt like to pee in my seat.”

“But I kinda liked it,” he quipped. “Is that weird?”

After 20 years in racing, this was Hamlin’s first time ever urinating on himself during a competition.

However, he said he knows several drivers who do it regularly.

In the end, Hamlin relieving himself didn’t put him in Victory Lane at the end of the race.

Hamlin finished 23rd in Atlanta.

But it’s one race that he will never forget.
