Officials have recovered the body of 28-year-old NASCAR fan Nick Bower on Tuesday afternoon, in a creek not far from the Talladega Speedway. Bower had been missing for 10 days. The Body was discovered in a creek about a mile and a half from the raceway.

His Girlfriend who reported him missing had last seen him when they were going to sleep in his truck the eve before the race.  At this time no foul play is suspected. The remains were turned over to the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences for an autopsy.

The Anniston Star reported that Talladega County deputy coroner Larry Seals, said Bower’s body was spotted at 11:49 a.m. CT by an Etowah County Sheriff’s Office helicopter in the Choccolocco Creek. This is the second death of a NASCAR fan this season. The first came earlier in the year when a fan shot himself in the head.

Bower had gone to Talladega with his girlfriend, to watch the race and because they didn’t get their tent set up before the rains came they were going to sleep in his truck. When she awoke Bower was missing and no one has seen him since.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
