According to James “Doc” Love from the popular Street Outlaws show, he will not be racing this weekend at Summit Motorsports Park in Norwalk, Ohio. Instead, he is in the hospital.
Love wrote that he suffered a heart attack, while being in Ohio on social media. He also said in the post that the doctors needed to put three stints in.
We’re not clear exactly when Love’s heart attack happened. But he mentioned that he underwent surgery to correct the issue.
“Thanks to some great doctors and my stubborn a**, I am doing well,” he wrote on Facebook. “Sorry to all my fans, who wanted to see me race. If they release me tomorrow, I will come to the track and say hi.”
The No Prep Kings are racing today and tomorrow in Ohio. If Love is not cleared by tomorrow, he may be able to return to racing when the show goes to GALOT Motorsports Park in Benson, North Carolina on October 12th and 13th.
The show ends its taping October 26th and 27th at Texas Motorsports Park in Ennis, Texas.
Doc drives “The Street Beast,” which is a 1970 Chevy Monte Carlo. He says it’s “set on kill for anyone brave enough to challenge him.”
Love has been as high as No. 1 on the Oklahoma Top 10 list. The Street Beast has a 706 Cubic Inch Big Block Chevy Engine with a Turbo 400 Ace Racing Transmission. In addition, it is mounted with three Monte Smith Nitrous Kits.
