What’s Happening?

The 5-part docuseries NASCAR Full Speed was officially released on Netflix on Tuesday, and there were plenty of memorable moments. However, a few may have slipped between the cracks, and some fans may not have caught them. Here are some of the moments fans might have missed when watching Season 1 of NASCAR Full Speed.

  • For this list, we will look at small moments here and there that some fans may have glossed over. Big moments that are consistently being talked about will not be on this list.
  • These moments can either be funny or serious. As long as they seem to have slipped past the fanbase, they are fair game.
  • Fans generally loved this documentary, and they loved many moments in it. However, since it is quite comprehensive, some moments easily went in one ear and out the other.

Tyler Reddick Peeing in His Firesuit

One of the most common questions that people ask about NASCAR drivers is what they do when nature calls. Do they hold it, or do they do what they have to do in their firesuits? Well, Tyler Reddick admitted that he peed in his firesuit during the Round of 12 elimination race at the Charlotte Roval. When asked why, he said, “You don’t want to hold it!”

This answers a question that many NASCAR fans or casual fans of the sport ask. If drivers have to go, then, well, they just do it. It makes sense because drivers can’t just get out of a car during a race, and drivers need to drink a lot of water before and during a race to stay hydrated.

William Byron’s Love of Fruit Loops

In the first episode, William Byron is shown in his home with his girlfriend Erin Blaney at breakfast time. Byron says that he will eat fruit loops that morning because he can’t get fruit loops at the race track. Honestly, this is about the most William Byron moment that he could have.

Byron is just a regular guy, and he happens to love fruit loops. Honestly, who doesn’t love fruit loops? It shows that William Byron is exactly the guy that people think he is, just a normal dude.

Christopher Bell is a Certified Dad

Christopher Bell is primarily a background character until episode 4 talking about the Round of 8. In that episode, he and his wife, Morgan, are heading to the NASCAR Hall of Fame for an event. Morgan and Christopher spend the ride talking about how much Christopher cares about his new grass in their new house.

This is a certified dad moment, but, it is understandable. Since Christopher owns this house, he wants his grass to be great, and he is a naturally competitive person as a race car driver. He aspires to have the lushest lawn in the neighborhood.

The 2nd Place Trophy

When focusing on Ross Chastain in the third episode, Trackhouse executives Justin Marks and Ty Norris spend some time talking about their 2022 second-place finish. One of the most interesting moments in that sequence is Norris pointing out the 2nd Place trophy that drivers get for finishing runner-up in the NASCAR Cup Series Playoffs.

This is not uncommon, as many other sports have a second-place ring or trophy of some sort. However, most individuals use them as motivational tools instead of legitimate Championship rings or trophies.

Roger Penske’s Indianapolis Motor Speedway Sweater

Roger Penske makes a few fleeting appearances throughout the second half of the docuseries, particularly surrounding Ryan Blaney. In every appearance that Penske makes, he is wearing a sweater with a small Indianapolis Motor Speedway logo on his chest. Of course, he owns the race track, so, why would he not promote it?

Now, this does show where Penske’s passion truly lies. It lies with owning and maintaining the greatest race course in the world. He is “The Captain” after all, and he is successful with virtually anything he touches.

What are some other moments we missed from the NASCAR Netflix docuseries? Were there other cool moments that many NASCAR fans did not notice?
