NASCAR Crew Chief Nick Harrison Dies From Unknown Causes At 37

A NASCAR crew chief died on Sunday and there are no details or reasoning behind his death. Nick Harrison, a 37-year-old, renown for being a crew chief, was paid tribute before a NASCAR race at New Hampshire Motor Speedway, and the crowd honored the crew chief with a moment of silence before the race.

Harrison died overnight and it was “total shock,” his brother Zach Harrison said, according to ESPN.

“It’s a devastating loss,” Formosa said, according to the Tennessean. “I couldn’t sleep last night: I bet I didn’t sleep an hour. Nick was a one of a kind guy. He was happy-go-lucky, full of love, full of heart, full of passion, full of desire. When he got to the garage area everybody knew him and everybody loved him. He was like a son to me.”

Harrison was a crew chief for three different NASCAR national series since 2006. He has a cabinet of five Xfinity Series wins.

“We all lost a friend last night. We love you Nick Harrison. You were a leader, and a great friend to all,” Kurt Busch posted on Twitter. “Nick really helped me rebuild my career when I was at a low point. RIP.”

Harrison started his career as a crew chief for Steadman Marlin, who were both from Columbia, Tennessee. Harrison started at the Nashville Speedway to be the chief for Marlin, who was the son of Sterling Marlin, the two-time Daytona 500 champion.

“Basically, he was my brother,” Marlin said, according to the Tennessean. “He would give you the shirt off his back. You couldn’t ask for a better dude. He loved racing. Best I could gather he was going to do another three years (as a crew chief) and then he had intentions on coming back here and start building chassis. He was laughing about it and said, ‘I have enough intelligence about this that I can put everybody out of business.”
