NASCAR driver treated after race at New Hampshire

Chandler Smith needed medical attention after the NASCAR Xfinity race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway

On Saturday, the NASCAR Xfinity Series raced in Loudon, NH. The 1-mile of New Hampshire Motor Speedway hosted the event on a hot and humid day.

Most NACSAR drivers elect to run a cooling suit. The suit is designed to pump cold water through tiny tubes that are pressed into an undershirt.

Chandler Smith started the race from the pole position. He then drove to the stage 1 win.

Then, Chandler Smith’s coolsuit failed. The suit continued to pump water, however, the water was now hot.

Instead of a cooling suit, Smith was now wearing a heating suit.

Today had a high of 87 degrees. Humidity sat at 79%.

The race ended with a crash in double-overtime. Smith was in a battle for the race win until the very end, coming up just short of the victory.

After the race, Smith pulled to the pit lane and climbed from his car. He sat down alongside his car, clearly exhausted. The medical team helped the driver with bags of ice.

Smith was taken to the medical center for IVs.
