Ronnie Coleman couldn’t keep his calm 

The ever-so-calm Ronnie Coleman once shared one of his experiences that shook him away totally. Coleman once tried the NASCAR driving experience and he couldn’t get over it. Moreover, he acknowledged the fact later that NASCAR drivers are real athletes, seeing the skills and high difficulty level they go through in the race.

After experiencing the drive, he said, “I ain’t gonna lie to you when I first sat in that car, I forgot I was claustrophobic. And for about a minute or two, I was like I gotta get out of here. That’s the way I felt. Just like that. I had to calm myself down for like five minutes. I am like no, no I can’t do this, I can’t do this. I am like f*** it, I am in here now.”
