Similar Questions for How Do NASCAR Drivers Go to the Bathroom from Yahoo AnswersQuestionAnswer
#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.
How is it that the Nascar drivers never have to use the bathroom?Answer
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.

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