Growing up in Miami

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, 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 he loved football, during his last 2 years of playing, he knew he wanted to race cars of some sort. And 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, I 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, the NASCAR diversity team. That summer, he competed in the Bojangles Summer Shootout at the Charlotte Motor Speedway
racing legend cars. He came in 5th in the overall championship. That was the very first time he raced in an oval track.

The following year, he competed in the Rev Racing combine and got signed to drive late models in the Whelen All American Series
which he raced for 2 seasons. He compiled multiple wins at and poles. After a successful rookie season in the ARCA Menards Series East, he competed full-time in the 2021 ARCA Menards Series for a fourth consecutive season with Rev Racing, gaining his first win in the series at Kansas Speedway.

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

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.  He brought home the Rookie of the Year title.

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