    We flew drivers to the pits day before green flag so they could sleep until after the checkers and rig was loaded and dishes were washed.

    im 22 and if i get a couple redbulls in me i can go 20hrs pretty easy. alot of it depends on what truck tho. if i can hear that turbo whinning a guy thinks he'll never fall asleep. I wanna pull some pots but up here in mn i feel its alittle tougher to find that. almost have to be grandfathered in.

    When you can do the 20 hrs without the redbull, itll be better. "Energy drinks" wreak havoc with internal body chemistry. You *feel* fine bit arent actually operating at 100% and the crash is that much worse than doing the 20 hr day without it and *knowing* your last few hours werent as good as the first.

    Don't go hard on the energy drinks, I knew a guy who died of heart failure at 22, he passed military physical a year or 2 before, so pounding energy drinks is the only thing that makes sense to me, could've been a heart issue that was missed though I suppose.

    It's crazy how many people I know that drink 4 or 5 of those things a day. Granted I drink plenty of soda but I could never really feel that much energy boost with energy drinks, just made me jittery but not awake

    I drank some of that stuff when I was like 12, I could have threaded a running sewing machine I had the jitters so bad.

    People have died of heart attacks from drinking energy drinks.

      Dec 13, 2018 · A 2016 study found that energy drinks can raise blood pressure, which greatly increase the risk of heart attack and stroke. Research from 2017 showed that they can also cause problems with heart rate. And other dangerous heart problems have been linked to energy drinks, even in young people. It’s not clear what makes energy drinks hard on the heart, but it doesn’t seem to be just the caffeine.

    It's a combination of the sugar and caffeine I think. I know I've drank enough regular pop in a day to get the jitters and shakes.
