We send best wishes for 8-time NWA World Heavyweight Champion Harley Race.
Race was scheduled for the Fan Boy Expo in Knoxville on Friday but there were signs that he needed to be checked out and the decision was made that he needed to go to the hospital.
Race is currently in the hospital under doctor’s care. Race’s official Twitter account noted that there is no timetable on his health situation. Race has been battling lung cancer. Back in March, people close to him said that it was not terminal.
We wish him the best and hope for a speedy recovery.
Just a quick update on Mr. Race, he is still at the hospital under doctors care. There isn't any time table for any situation as his health is of utmost priority. We will be releasing more info later this afternoon. Thanks to everyone for their concern and continue the thoughts.
