Fred Brownfield, president of the National Sprint Tour, died after being struck by a modified stock car at Grays Harbor Speedway on Wednesday night.


According to a statement released by Grays Harbor Raceway, Brownfield was struck while lining up cars before the start of the D Main race and was taken by medical personnel to Mark Reed Hospital in McCleary.


Brownfield is survived by his wife, Debbie; three daughters, Carrie, Jessica and Shelby; and two sons, Ty and Luke.


The NST's scheduled race at Tri-City Speedway Sunday night has been postponed.


DIRT Motorsports president Tom Deery issued this statement.


“Today is truly a sad day in motor sports because Fred Brownfield was one of the racing family’s best promoters, most ardent supporters and dearest friends,” said Deery. “I have personally known Fred and Debbie for over 15 years, Fred Brownfield was a man of character and values. He will be missed by all of us.”
