Spotter Brad Campbell died Friday after he was involved in an accident last weekend on the way to the airport to travel to Texas Motor Speedway, DGM Racing announced.
Campbell also was an EMT and spent time in New York City as an EMT during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in the city. The team stated that Campbell was an organ donor.
The DGM Racing cars of Josh Williams, Alex Labbe and Dexter Bean will honor Campbell with decals on their cars for Saturday’s Xfinity race at Kansas Speedway (5 p.m. ET on NBCSN). Williams’ car will have Campbell’s name over the driver side door.
“Our eyes in the sky” takes on a whole new meaning today as Brad Campbell now watches over us from the Heavens. Brad was also an EMT, and in true EMT fashion he is now saving lives through organ donation. Help us give back to his family: https://t.co/FxPb0teep4

Hug your loved ones a little tighter today. Brad Campbell was a good dude and a member of our spotting family. Unfortunately he lost his life in a car crash on his way to the plane last week. He’s got a much better view now, keep an eye on us all bud.
Rest In Peace. pic.twitter.com/W36gzW5KHF
