At a quarter to ten on the morning of August 15th, Leandro crossed into the town of Troy. His stomach was tight with anticipation and –let’s face it, folks –a tingle of fear. His skin felt cold.
I may get sick. I may get sick, and if I do, I’m going to leave about ninety feet of rubber reversing out of the area.

What does the bolded phrase mean?

Leandro is on his way to Haven. He is a journalist and he has a hunch that something weird is befalling in this town. He turned up some 4 people who related to him some stories about getting sick as they approach the Haven town line from Troy.

Thank you.
