NASCAR Drivers Have Awkward Port-a-Potty Encounter After Race

You probably don’t think about it, but NASCAR races are long, and it stands to reason that at some point, the drivers have to use the restroom.

But if they do, just like kids in the backseat on the way to granny’s, the drivers generally have to hold it.

So after the race, it can be just short of a mad dash to the port-a-potty on site.

That’s what happened to Denny Hamlin following the NASCAR race in Atlanta on Sunday. He finished the race … and immediately headed for the port-a-potty.

But this particular makeshift bathroom was already being occupied by another driver —  Brad Keselowski, who finished second in the race on the track, but first in the race to relieve himself.

The cameras caught Keselowski heading into the port-a-potty. Then they caught Hamlin walking over to the same one. The rest of the world knew that the space was occupied. And watched as Hamlin failed to realize it himself.

But this was probably more on Keselowski than Hamlin. Lock the door, dude.


At any rate, Hamlin had some fun after the video of the incident went viral.

“Smelled like Hawaiian Rolls when I got in there,” Hamlin tweeted, in reference to Keselowski’s sponsor, King’s Hawaiian, a bakery company.

Keselowski has said nothing — at least not about the potty incident. But it’s pretty evident he has an issue with finishing second.

At least, that’s what he said after the race, won by Joey Logano, who passed Keselowski on the final lap.

“I’m disappointed that Joey got such a great run,” Keselowski said. “… But I’m not disappointed with my team. He made a great move, and he deserves credit for it. I don’t think there was any way I was going to stop it without wrecking us all.”

He probably could’ve said the same about Hamlin and the port-a-potty ordeal.
