Tony in trouble

Tony Stewart may be in big trouble if tonights rumors about him running a driver over at a sprint car race are true.

Event got cancelled. Everyone was told to leave. Police, ambulance, and helicopter are at the track. There are rumours that the driver has past away but nothing confirmed yet. This is really scary.

I'm not going to post it here, but there is a video circling around now that shows the incident. Hopefully, Kevin Ward will be okay.

Big story!

Difficult to judge.

I assume Stewart tried to "scare" him.

Now matter how any fanboy tries to spin the blame to either party, this is undoubtedly and without question the end of Stewarts career as a racing driver. It matters not whether or not he "tried to scare him", you watched the video, you heard him step on the throttle as he approached Ward and subsequently swiped him under the tire as clear as day, that was 100% an avoidable incident. Simply drive around the man Tony...MAKE AN EFFORT.

Don't get me wrong, Ward was a complete fool for getting out of his car and willingly putting himself in harms way, and sadly he paid the ultimate price for his actions. However, that does not change the fact that a multi-million dollar professional race-team owner and race car driver struck and killed a 20 year old sprint racer, setting a fantastic example for his millions of fans and NASCAR as an organization.


And to think, when I actually watched NASCAR, I idolized Tony and I was a massive fan of his. What a shame.

Given Stewart's history of temper tantrums, coupled with the fact that he just been involved in an on track altercation with Ward and then runs over and kills him, Stewart's infamous temper may have finally gotten the best of him! This could go VERY bad for him! I agree, it could very well end his career! Haas could very well need another partner.

I wonder who will drive the 14 car today or if it will be pulled from the line-up? I've ALWAYS said that Stewart's temper would. one day, get him into BIG trouble. That might have just happened!

I don't follow Nascar (or sprint cars) but this is one of the weirdest incidents I've ever heard of. Clearly running onto the track, under caution or not, is an amazingly stupid thing to do, but from what I'm hearing some say that Stewart accelerated into him? I'm really finding it hard to believe that anyone would do that. If he did then could that be jail time?

Anyway, horrible waste of life whatever happened.

Watched the video, interesting for the investigators.

We had a similar incident years ago, in V8SC's. Two drivers made contact,
Driver spun out, waited for other driver to come around, walked to edge of track, driver in car on track swerved towards driver off track. very stupid thing by both parties

Looks like the same only contact was made, and a driver is dead.

One he should have waited and not walked onto a hot track

Two the was no need for tony to accelerate as it was under caution flag.

This will be interesting investigation.

They both screwed up. Kevin Ward Jr. shouldn't have gone down as far as he did and Tony Stewart shouldn't have drifted up to send a message/scare him.

Something like this has been brewing for years now, especially on the smaller tracks. We've seen angry drivers being dragged, drivers jumping onto moving cars and so on. It was just a matter of time before someone got hurt really bad and now it finally happened.
