Former AMA Pro Bruce Lind Plans To Race With USBA At Miller Motorsports Park Three Weeks After Suffering A Heart Attack On Easter Sunday

Bruce Lind, seen here riding his Yamaha TZ250 in Las Vegas last season, plans to be back racing three weeks after suffering a heart attack.
Racer Bruce Lind, age 65, suffered a heart attack while doing yard work at home in Snohomish, Washington on Easter Sunday morning, underwent surgery to have a stent inserted in an artery about 1:30 p.m. the same day, checked himself out of the hospital 48 hours later and returned to work at Boeing mid-week.

Reached by cell phone, Lind told he figured out he was having a heart attack due to intense pain in his chest, which felt like somebody was stabbing him with a knife. Lind asked his wife Edie to call 911, and was transported to a local hospital by ambulance.

Lind said that he plans to race his Yamaha TZ250 during the upcoming USBA weekend scheduled for April 20-21 at Miller Motorsports Park in Tooele, Utah.

Lind, who has won motorcycle road races in six decades--the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, 2000s and 2010s--and competed as an AMA Pro across nearly five decades, is featured in the April 2013 issue of Roadracing World & Motorcycle Technology magazine.
