Kyle Busch felt sick for the final 200 laps Sunday at Charlotte Motor Speedway.
Not only did he blame himself for wrecking a potentially race-winning car, but he also felt much hotter than normal and inhaled carbon monoxide fumes because the crush panels had been damaged in the lap-137 crash.
Busch, who was given ice bags during pit stops, laid on the ground for a couple of minutes after the race and exited the infield care center about 40 minutes after receiving oxygen and fluids.
“I’m all right,” Busch said. “I’m better now. … It just got so hot, that literally, you felt like you were going to puke and just trying to make it to the end of the race and luckily we did.
“And from there, [they were] just trying to get cooled back down and get my body temperature back to normal.” Busch said his carbon monoxide level was “in the double digits.”
