Taking a lap around Barber Motorsports Park really gets Josef Newgarden’s heart and lungs racing (VIDEO)

When IndyCar drivers take laps around road courses, it all seems so fluid, so natural, so easy. No stress, no high blood pressure, no problem, right?
Thanks to our friends at IndyCar.com, check out this video below of Sarah Fisher Hartman Racing driver Josef Newgarden as he takes a practice lap around the 2.38-mile, 17-turn Barber Motorsports Park — site of Sunday’s IndyCar race — from about six weeks ago.
Newgarden was all by himself on the track and was hooked up to a monitor that recorded his heartbeat and respiration. The results are interesting, if not eye-opening.
And if what Newgarden does and goes through doesn’t get your own heart beating faster, then we can only guess you’re not human.
