When someone gets too upset for their own good, it helps to have someone nearby reminding them to”just breathe.” Darrell Wallace Jr. could’ve used that kind of advice at Pocono Raceway on Sunday.

Wallace was so upset after finishing 26th in his Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series debut Sunday that he actually passed out, according to NBC Sports. The incident occurred while Wallace was being interviewed on pit road shortly after the Axalta presents the Pocono 400.

And, apparently, this is nothing new for him.

“I was looking at something, set to go to victory lane,” Wallace said, via NBC Sports. “This is the third time this has happened. I get so pissed off at myself that I just pass out. … Yeah, I’m good.”

Wallace eventually was able to gather his emotions and find his way to victory lane, where he congratulated close friend Ryan Blaney, who was celebrating his first Cup race victory.
