With atmospheric temperatures hovering around 90 degrees and on-track temperatures even higher, it was obviously pretty hot during Saturday’s Menards 250 NASCAR Xfinity Series race at Michigan International Speedway.

It was even hotter for driver Ty Dillon, who spent most of Saturday’s race without air conditioning. As a result, Dillon went to the MIS infield medical center after the race for a fill-up of IV fluid to replenish some of what he lost in the race.

One good thing: Temperatures are expected to be about 15 degrees lower in Sunday’s FireKeepers Casino 400

Check out Dillon’s post on Instagram, with a couple of followup posts on Twitter:
