might also want to get checked for urinary retension. many people have it and don't know it. it can be caused by different things. however, one of the symptoms is the inability to go under certain conditions and not being able to empty your bladder completely. having your bladder overly full can cause reflux into your kidney, which can cause serious kidney damage. I know about this, because I was in the ER after one of the V2Rs (for crash related stuff) when they discovered I was retaining over a liter of urine, even after going to the bathroom. one way to solve your problem, is to use an indwelling catheter when you race. some have a flip valve so you don't constantly drip. they are effective, but can be a bit uncomfortable until you get used to it.

You need to relax your core, loosen your Ass muscles up, try to slump a little and do not focus on the fact that it’s so difficult to pee.

For me it’s been so simple that I’m able to wait for long right hand sweepers so it flows out and away from the corider.

You’ll get the hang of it. Like anything, don’t overthink it and get stage fright. People went to the moon, Lewis and Clark walked across the god dam country, you can pee in the car. We believe in you.
😂😂😂😂 I have zero issues peeing while racing also.

Guess being paraplegic and having no control over it helps that case🤣 my chick didn’t even make a heat at b@p co driving with me without having to go also. She just waited for a straightaway lol. Before I broke my back I used to hold it for entire races. It hurt to do so. But it was very hard for me to piss myself in the race suit. Ive heard of people having issues from sitting in it for hours if it doesn’t dry fast.

At the 2020 1000 my brothers catheter got disconnected and he peed all of the seat god knows how many times. I got in after him and sat in it for 15 hours. I had the worst case of chaffed monkey butt for the next three days. The acidity was horrendous. Never forgave him for that misery.

next time try a glad trash bag, they work to a certain extent like in rain races , put it on like shorts, or just drape seat then sit down in, and kind fold around lap belts, that or enjoy the nasty Ph balanced h2o

Don't stop hydrating or change your diet and drink as much as you want and need during a race. Don't use the generic 'one size fits all' cath's you pick up at tech, go to a pharmacy and buy a few different sizes to test out and get a real cath tube that is reusable. I had a hard time going with the race ones and the tube was hard to get in a good spot and would sometimes kink. After finding a comfortable size and a more rigid tube, I could go anytime under most any condition. Take the time to get your 'placement' right before you start and again any time you may have to get out of the car. Wear it testing so you get used to it. I know it sounds funny but I used a different size in cold weather than in hot weather. Good Luck. Also they are way cheaper at a pharmacy.

A story told by a couple of buddies when they had just started racing Mini Mags back in the day. Guy #1 tells guy #2 he needs a catheter, and one of the vendors sells them, so to go pick one up. He tells him, "get a medium, I got a large and it fell right off". So guy 1 heads over to the vendor, who happens to be an attractive young lady in a tube top (remember those?), and tells her he needs a cather, and he needs a medium. She replies, "they only come in one size".... Guy #1 is laughing in hysterics...

Are you talking about the ones that go inside the tip?

Ok Zac, everything just got clearer and I forgive you! Haha My trick is trying top use the catheter at least once before starting the race, once you pop the seal its easier during the race

I had this problem when I first started racing. Was the most unnatural, annoying thing. one race I was I agonizing pain and had to slow Down w near stop to get my flow going. At first i tried to drink less but this is stupid and dangerous. What I do now is hydrate like crazy, and go nuts even more before I suit up to stage. Then I end up pissing many times during staging before bound8nf around and this gets my body/mind less focused and relaxed about it. then it’s no problem once the race starts. We have half gallon each during the race as well.. Not always easy, but never a problem now. Try waterlogging an hour before you stage and pee as many times as you can while strapped in at staging.. helped me a lot.

The cathadors never worked for me, I just go when I have to go. Get my suit cleaned after every race.

I ALWAYS do #2 right at the start before I get in the truck. Every time.

Way way back in an ATV race back east I was running in 2nd (out of 27 in my class) and had to do #2. The leader was only about 1/8 mile ahead of me. I did what I had to do.

After I finished My girlfriend wouldn’t let me get in the RV. She built an impromptu outside shower curtain and hosed me off. Funny race!
