IRWINDALE – A 62-year-old drag racer at Irwindale Speedway slumped over the wheel of his red Mustang on Thursday night and never woke up, authorities said Friday. County fire officials said Ed Conrad was pronounced dead at Methodist Hospital in Arcadia. Conrad was about to begin a race at the speedway. Conrad often raced in Irwindale. “From what the paramedics told me, it was an apparent heart attack,” said Speedway Vice President Robert DeFazio. “I’m told by witnesses he slumped over the wheel, passed out, and went down the track a little ways and stopped.” Speedway safety crews performed CPR on Conrad until Los Angeles County firefighters arrived. “In this instance, he was pulseless,” said Capt. Steve Bierbaum. “CPR was being conducted when we arrived. The paramedics continued with advanced life support and it’s my understanding that he was pronounced dead at the hospital.” Bierbaum could not confirm whether a heart attack was the cause of death. County fire Capt. Miguel Garcia said Conrad did not appear to have been seriously injured in the crash. Racing fans left the track unsure of whether Conrad had survived, Elias said. When he heard Conrad had died, Elias was shaken. “We knew something really terrible was happening,” he said. “He died doing what he loved … I suppose you could look at it that way.” firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2730160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
