Chip Ganassi Racing driver Kyle Larson said the issues with his health this past weekend stemmed from dehydration. Larson fainted last Saturday at Martinsville Speedway. Thursday, Larson was part of a teleconference with reporters. Larson said he felt fine Saturday morning, even practiced in his car that day. The trouble he said happened at an autograph session with fans.
“I got through to the end of it, and I was just talking to one more fan, the last person there really, and just started getting light-headed and tried to lean forward and maybe see if that fixed it, and then I passed out,” he said.
“I don’t know, it was just kind of a weird morning,” he added. “Just because I was almost late to practice, so I just rushed myself that morning and didn’t take very good care of myself throughout the day and just ended up dehydrating myself. Just got to do a better job of taking care of myself, and that should never happen again.” MORE>>>
