By the time police got to the fallen security guard, he’d forgotten his name.

Standing nearly 7 feet, Troy Price, 48, of Fishersville, was hit in the back of the head while working at Eastside Speedway a week ago, authorities said. He suffered several strokes, leaving him without feeling in, or control of, the right side of his body.

Authorities are investigating but have made no arrests.

After days of medical attention, Price’s condition has improved, his wife, Juli, 47, said Saturday.

It was the second violent incident at the Dooms race track in as many months.

Juli Price, who works next to a police scanner at an Augusta County traffic operation center, heard about the assault at the same time as police Oct. 24, she said.

Moments later her phone started ringing. “I get a phone call, and they want to know what meds Troy is taking, because he doesn’t know who he is or what he is,” Juli Price said.
