(**Bulletin)E-mod racer dies of apparent heart attack during feature race at Stateline Speedway...

For the first time in it's storied history... there's been a driver fatality at Stateline Speedway.  Multiple sources have told us the racer apparently suffered a heart attack while racing in the E-Mod Feature last Saturday night at the Busti racing facility.  One source says the race car slowed... and, struck the wall between turns three and four after the driver was striken.  However... hitting the wall reportedly did not cause the man to die.  He was pulled from the car, and, put on a back-board, and taken by ambulance to the hospital.  We are withholding the racer's name -- at this time -- because he has not been identified by authorities.  Up until this point... in the 57-year history of Stateline Speedway... there had not been a fatality among drivers actually racing on the track.  We did place a call to Stateline Owner Jennifer Seamens for further detail... but, were unable to reach her.
