• Nicholas was born and raised in Miami, FL in a Cuban-American home with his parents and two younger sisters. Growing up, Nick's father had a construction company and Nick loved riding around on his construction equipment - excavators, backhoes, and bobcats.

    That began his love for anything with wheels. From the time he was 2, he could always be found driving around his backyard in either a ride-on power wheel, ATV, or a
    dune buggy. That started his love for driving.

    When Nick was 5 years old, his great uncle gave Nick and his father 2 extra tickets he had to the NASCAR Truck Series race at Homestead-Miami Speedway. Nick loved the race and that started his interest in racing.

    At the age of 6, Nick went on to compete at his local BMX track which was the closest thing to racing something with wheels.

    The following year when he was 7, his parents enrolled him in a tackle football team because of his mother’s love for the sport and their home teams, The Miami Hurricanes and The Miami Dolphins. Nick played on that team for the
    next 5 years, until he was 12.

    Although during his last 2 years of playing football, he knew he wanted to race cars of some sort.  After begging his parents to allow him to get into racing, they finally found a local go-karting team that he could join. When he was 12, he began competing in go-kart races around Florida and continued for the next 3.5 years. He raced on multiple national circuits including Rok Cup USA and The Florida Winter Tour.

    His home track and where he practiced weekly was the karting track on the grounds
    outside of the Homestead-Miami Speedway. He always looked over to the big track
    and said he hoped to race there someday in NASCAR.

    In 2017, right after his 16th birthday, Nick earned a coveted spot on Rev Racing, NASCAR's diversity team. That summer, he competed in the Bojangles Summer
    Shootout at the Charlotte Motor Speedway where he raced legend cars. He came in
    5th in the overall championship. That was the very first time Nick raced on an oval track.

    The following year, Nick competed in the Rev Racing combine and got signed to the coveted spot to drive late models in the Whelen All American Series which he raced for 2 seasons. He compiled multiple wins and poles.

    After a successful rookie season in the ARCA Menards Series East in 2020, he competed full-time in the 2021 ARCA Menards Series for a fourth consecutive season with Rev Racing.  He gained his first win in the series at Kansas Speedway.

    He continued racing full-time in the main ARCA in 2022 with victories at Kansas, Talladega, and Michigan.  Nick brought home the ARCA Menards Series Championship.

    In 2022, Nick also made his NASCAR Xfinity Series debut at Phoenix Raceway and raced
    part-time for Big Machine Racing.

    In 2023, he began his rookie season in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series, piloting the No. 2, Gainbridge Chevrolet with a technical partner, Kyle Busch
    Motorsports.  Nick earned 5 poles, 4 stage victories, 2 top-fives, and 12 top-ten finishes,  He missed the cutline for
    the Championship Four by a tie-breaker.  Nick brought home the Rookie of the Year title.

    In 2024, he will begin his second season in the NASCAR Craftsman Truck Series,
    piloting the No. 2, Gainbridge Chevrolet with a technical partner, Spire Motorsports.
