“It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Nick Harrison, our beloved crew chief of the No. 11 car at Kaulig Racing,” Team owner Matt Kaulig and President Chris Rice said in a statement. “Please keep Nick’s family in your thoughts and prayers at this time”

At this time, no cause of death has been released.

Harrison, according to Racing Reference, was a crew chief for 120 races at the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series over five-years from 2010 through 2014. He was last the crew chief for Brian Scott in four races in 2014.

He began his MESCS crew chief experience with Landon Cassill in 2010.

“Only worked with Nick Harrison a few times, but we instantly became friends,” Michael McDowell said in a Tweet. “He was genuine, hilarious, and a true racer. Very sad to hear of his passing. Only thing I can say is This is not our home. Praying for his friends and family.”

Harrison spent 11 seasons as a crew chief over 184 races since 2006, 2010-2019 in the NASCAR Xfinity Series. He was a crew chief for Haley in 17 races this season.

He was also a crew chief for Kurt Busch and Austin Dillon in three races in 2012 and 2014 in the NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck Series.
