NASCAR driver Daniel Suarez had himself quite a wild ride on Sunday.

Racing the Daytona road course Sunday, Suarez finished 16th — his best finish since 2019 in a Cup Series race.

But Suarez’s finish didn’t come without some struggle. As he revealed after the race, Suarez had thrown up inside his helmet with 15 laps to go, and had to tough it out through the final 40 minutes of the race despite the nasty situation.

“I started to feel sick with 25 laps to go and threw up in the car with 15 laps to go (yes, inside the helmet),” Suarez wrote on Twitter. “Those last 15 laps were definitely NOT fun to run… You guys can imagine…”

Still, Suarez was pleased with the effort he and his team put in on Sunday.

“An overall positive day for our iFLY Chevy Camaro,” Suarez wrote. “There are a lot of different areas that we have to improve on, but that’s the fun part about racing! We are just building this team and it will only get better from here.”

Hopefully Suarez’s next race is vomit-free.
