The full-time driver in both the Sprint Cup and XFINITY Series proved his stamina after May's Coca-Cola 600, running 14 miles to the NASCAR Hall of Fame following NASCAR's longest race of the season. He also qualified to compete in next month's Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Austria.

As he braved temperatures that saw one in-car thermometer in Casey Mears' car reach at least 131 degrees, Cassill had a query: How much weight would a driver lose over 400 miles in a race?

See the results of his experiment below.
