Alexander Rossi, the driving force of the No. 27 automotive for Andretti Autosport, not too long ago defined how he dealt with that concern as a part of an internet video phase with NBC Sports activities’ Rutledge Wooden. Forward of Sunday’s season-opening race, Rossi took questions from kids about being an IndyCar driver, and a 7-year-old named Logan requested one which Rossi had seemingly by no means heard earlier than.

“How do you decide your nostril throughout the race with out getting seen?” Logan mentioned.

“You simply do it,” Rossi responded. “Like, nobody’s gonna see you.” Truthful sufficient.

Rossi added that he has scratched his nostril throughout a race, particularly when below warning, and that served as a pure transition to his story about sneezing whereas driving at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

“I did sneeze as soon as at Indianapolis, and that was a wild expertise,” Rossi mentioned. “Like, I sneezed happening the entrance straightaway. It was sort of bizarre. … It got here out of nowhere as a result of I might have tried to carry it in in any other case. I do not know if it was allergy season, however yeah, I used to be simply driving alongside, after which it was simply this huge sneeze.

“After which that was effective, however then if you open your eyes once more, it is simply, like, bizarre. It was a bizarre — it took a half-second to refocus.”

OK, that is terrifying.

Let’s hope Rossi would not neglect to take his allergy medicine earlier than this Sunday’s Honda Indy Grand Prix of Alabama at Barber Motorsports Park.
