MCCOOL JUNCTION, Neb. (AP) – A 28-year-old Iowa man has died while racing in eastern Nebraska.  The Lincoln Journal Star reports that 28-year-old Brent Drohman, of Davenport, was driving a B-modified car at Junction Motor Speedway just west of McCool Junction on Saturday. His family says an autopsy showed Drohman suffered a massive heart attack before his car rammed into a track wall.

His cousin Jed Williams says Drohman “passed away doing what he loved.”  Drohman is survived by his wife, an 8-year-old daughter and a 4-year-old son.
