TALLDEGA, Ala. - Dale Earnhardt Inc.’s director of motorsports Ritchie Gilmore returned to his Mooresville, N.C., home Friday after experiencing stroke-like symptoms while at Talladega Superspeedway.

He was evaluated at a hospital in Birmingham, Ala., but apparently did not suffer a stroke, DEI spokesman Kevin Woods said.

It is not clear when Gilmore will return to work.
