Stewart retiring?

Strong rumours Stewart is not only going to retire - he's going to sell up and leave racing outright.

NASCAR: Tony Stewart To Announce Retirement From Auto Racing After Accident That Kills Competing Driver

Quote:
NASCAR Insiders Rusty Wallace and Darrell Waltrip have informed the Associated Press that three-time Sprint Cup Champion Tony Stewart will hold a press conference in the coming days, and is expected to announce his retirement from all auto racing activities, as well as announcing the sale of his half of his ownership of Stewart-Haas Racing. The announcement comes after Stewart tragically struck and killed fellow sprint car driver Kevin Ward, Jr.

“This was a tragic accident, one he just can’t get over. I talked with Tony yesterday and he made it clear, he is done with racing. I tried to suggest to him to take time off and think it over for a few months, he told me he has made up his mind and will announce soon. I hope he changes his mind, but it sure sounded like he meant it,” said former NASCAR champion and Hall of Fame member Rusty Wallace.

According to Waltrip, he talked to Stewart for hours the night after the accident and again two days ago, and he says Stewart has been grieving more and more after the initiative shock.

“The man hasn’t slept for days, this has rocked his world harder than anything he has ever had to deal with. He told me he could never effectively get back in a race car and drive. I expect an announcement in the next few days, he is just working on what he is going to say to the fans and most importantly the father of the victim, Kevin Ward, Sr.,” Waltrip told NASCAR reporter Nicole Briscoe via telephone interview last night.

I don't think this is a good source.

It's a relatively sophisticated traffic magnet. Spin a topical story, turn it into clickbait and collect the windfall. One step down from the Daily Mail in other words.

HOAX!

"Rusty Wallace ‏@RustyWallace 1h For the record, I have neither spoken with Tony Stewart nor AP regarding his retirement. Any such statement is a hoax."


"Retweeted by Ryan Briscoe
Nicole Briscoe ‏@RB_Mrs 16m
To be clear, the "story" regarding Tony Stewart's impending retirement is a hoax. I've had no such talks with Darrell Waltrip or the AP.

I think perhaps given we now know this story is a hoax (and I must admit I was also struggling to identify any element of satire or entertainment) it would be best just to close the thread and move on.

As repercussions develop I don't doubt that Stewart's intentions will become a valid point of discussion in another thread. Just remember to treat speculation carefully until the facts are established.

Thanks y'all.
