Tech Official Dies After Night Two Of World Series | SPEED SPORT

NEW SMYRNA BEACH, Fla. — A New Smyrna Speedway track official died overnight following Saturday night’s World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing program.

Matt Weaver of Short Track Scene reported the story initially, and other media outlets have since confirmed the death of longtime racing official Rusty Crews early Sunday morning.

The details surrounding Crews’ death are unknown pending an autopsy, however, according to reports he attempted to break up a fight between crew members at the conclusion of the sportsman feature and was later transported to a local hospital.

An Emergency Services Synopsis from the city of New Smyrna Beach patrol log noted that “Officers responded to assist deputies with a large fight” at 12:24 a.m. Sunday at New Smyrna Speedway.

Meanwhile, a statement from the Volusia County Sherriff’s Office provided to FOX Sports reporter Bob Pockrass read that “a person involved in a New Smyrna fight went to hospital for a medical issue and died.

“An autopsy will determine cause of death but at this stage, there is no specific evidence that the death was a direct result of the altercation or any specific actions during the altercation.”

Saturday marked the second of nine consecutive nights of racing at the half-mile paved oval during the 55th annual World Series of Asphalt Stock Car Racing.
