Ya, did a little research on the treatment for methanol and nitro poisoning. The treatment is ethanol. I'm headed to the liquor store.

Air, water, and a shot of Vodka. Real complex treatment there.

Still there have been no real toxicity concerns at any track with OK ventilation as long as you don't drink too much nitro. I love grape flavored Trinity Monster and cherry flavored Sidewinder, but I don't recommend drinking that for regular merely mortal human beings.

Lightheadedness or a headache can come from just the lack of oxygen or fresh air, not allways poisen.

Let's just stop with the chicken little stuff before ya'll get our tracks closed down by the .gov for a non-issue that has little or nothing to do with the OP's original concerns.

The .gov will use any excuse to shut down anything with exhaust these days.
