That's happened to me personally more than once. One time was in Pahrump at contingency. It was an impound race, and tech took like 5 hours. (This was also the race where I yelled profanities at to Baldwin for cutting in line and then bitch slapped Mark Post for yelling at ME for letting Baldwin cut, even though he was two trucks in front of me.)

I actually missed the driver's meeting at the RV park because I was still with the truck in tech. I'm in a wheelchair, so I had experience with external caths anyways. I put it on because I knew it was going to be a long one and I can't get out of the truck by myself to run to the bathroom. Having the little soft cooler they give you full of beer in the passenger seat didn't help things, and in hindsight was probably my biggest mistake.

We had a few drainage holes in the floor, so the piss came out under the middle of the truck. I had already waved off a few people who saw a puddle, but I missed one guy who got down on his hands and knees and actually stuck his fingers in it to sniff it. He was less than thrilled when he figured it out.

The other time was at Parker in staging on the surface streets. This time it was TWO guys because there was two puddles.

Then there was the time my brother jumped out to fix something while we were leading and he stepped on the tube and it SNAPPED back. He was out of commission for a good 3 or 4 minutes.

ME: "Hurry up! Hurry up!"
HIM: "Fuck you, asshole!"

We took to wearing them all three days at the big races because it was just too far to run into the Suncoast or Terrible's or whatever to take a piss.

So much cooler than you think. Holding it fawking HURTS! Every pebble feels like a jab to your kidneys. I drive a 7SX pogo stick.

Some of my classier friends have worn them into the bar later that night to save trips to the restroom. (or so they say)

So I did this and they said they are sending them but I had to explain my "problem" and "symptoms" of why I needed a catheter. Even want a Dr.'s Name and diagnosis including have someone call me back for "fitment" and assistance. It was a 10-15 minute process of which I felt like saying just send the stupid things or tell me where I can buy them at. So I won't get them in time for any upcoming races but I'll mention they should market them for racing application and see what they say.

I called and told the "brother" the truth. He started to read me his pre-screened speech and I told him it was for racing. He said they get calls from truck drivers who don't want to stop to pee, but this was a new one. They are covered by most insurance plans, but if you want to buy one, they were less than $12 each. told me my free samples would be in CA in 3 to 5 days.

FYI: My free samples arrived in the mail over the weekend. Pretty big box with four (4) samples and a dvd. Hopefully "Nurse Nancy" is on the dvd showing proper application techniques.

Theres only one problem with the Racecatheter. Leaving your adhesive removal pads and stuff in Ensanada and getting out of the car in BOLA then heading for La Paz........... After some tugging I left it on for another day till I could get a nice warm shower and soak it off.........

Same here, he started asking all kinds of questions and I told him that I use them for racing. He did try to get my Doctor to approve them for insurance but my Doc said no. They sent me 12 'samples.'

they called back and were a little annoyed when I said using them for racing.

Them: "You should have bought them"
Me: " I tried to purchase them outright but they lady kept asking about my condition, doctors approval, name, etc and wouldn't just sell them to me."
Them: "Oh well we are looking to add an option just to purchase for non precription uses. "
