Obviously. That doesn't alleviate Stewart of fault if it was in any way intentional, though. It really looks like Stewart hit the accelerator. His car moved up the track instead of down and away from Ward like the other drivers in front lf him. I don't know how he didn't see Ward as he is claiming.

I'm not sure it was intentional, but it's at least questionable and deserves to be investigated thoroughly.

Re: Tony Stewart 


I think he wanted to kick up some dirt on the driver that was looking for him and lost the rear end, thus hitting the poor guy. Looks like a case of manslaughter, according to my extensive criminal knowledge gained from years of watching Law and Order. There is only one person that knows what the truth is and that is Tony Stewart. If there was no blip of the throttle then his "I did not see him" excuse would be valid, however it appears he hit the throttle as he passed him.

Re: Tony Stewart 


He definitely hit the gas. It's just a matter of was he trying to scare the guy or did he actually try to hit him. I can't believe Stewart plans to race today. Nascar cannot allow this. It hasn't even been 24 hours since he killed a guy.

Re: Tony Stewart 


I just briefly read the NASCAR rules.  I didn't se anything about not getting out of your car after a crash.  Of course if it was on fire the prudent thing to do would be to get out as soon as possible.  Ward walked up the track into the face of oncoming traffic dressed in black.  Certainly there was contributory negligence on his part.  As usual accidents are usually due to a combination of factors.  Had Ward not removed himself from his car it would not have happened.  Perhaps had he not been wearing black, Stewart would have seen him.  Lots of factors but the primary one was Ward getting out of his vehicle and walking back into the face of oncoming traffic.

Re: Tony Stewart 


First off this is not nascar, it's dirt track racing. So their rules do not apply.

This situation will and can happen at any moment on any given Saturday night at a dirt track. Which doesn't make it right. From what I've seen from the video, Stewart did hit the throttle as he went by Ward. This is a very unfortunate situation which I'm sure Tony could take back if he could. Terrible

Stewart could be in some trouble here. Doesnt matter if he didnt mean to kill him, clearly his actions led to the young mans death. Hes going to be charged with involuntary homicide at the very least IMO.

What does it matter? It doesn't justify running a guy over.

This has to go down as one of the most ignorant, unsubstantiated posts in the history of BGN!

I have been watching this unfold all morning and nothing points to this being intentional.  WE have NO IDEA about what really went on based on the film footage.  Stewarts field of vision could very possibly have been obstructed not only by the HAANS Device used to restrain a drivers head, but also the roll bars and the huge wing.  The footage does not show him "hitting the gas" as some of you state.  Granted, he does seem to accelerate slightly but who is to say that Stewarts INTENT was to get by him faster and AVOID hitting him.

And for MAGS, why would you call him a piece of ****?  Do you follow NASCAR?  Do you know anything about Stewart?  Granted, he was a hot head in his early years but he has become an ambassador of the sport, has several charitable foundations, and is one of the most liked and respected drivers in the sport.

For all you kneejerkers, you may want to "cool your engines" before spouting off baseless claims.

Re: Tony Stewart 


Tyler Graves, a sprint-car racer and friend of Ward's, told Sporting News in a phone interview that he was sitting in the Turn 1 grandstands and saw everything that happened. 

"Tony pinched him into the frontstretch wall, a racing thing," Graves said. "The right rear tire went down, he spun on the exit of (Turn) 2. They threw the caution and everything was toned down. Kevin got out of his car. … He was throwing his arms up all over the place at Tony for most of the corner. 

"I know Tony could see him. I know how you can see out of these cars. When Tony got close to him, he hit the throttle. When you hit a throttle on a sprint car, the car sets sideways. It set sideways, the right rear tire hit Kevin, Kevin was sucked underneath and was stuck under it for a second or two and then it threw him about 50 yards."

You may want to take off the Tony Stewart colored glasses.

Re: Tony Stewart 


Can someone explain to me why you can do all sort of **** while playing a sport that you couldn't do anywhere else in life and get away with it. Like a dude walks up to another dude and punches him. That's assault. You should spend a night in jail for that. Do that while playing sports and its fine. Negligently run over a dude...usually prison. Negligently run over a dude while participating in a sport...yeah, that's fine.

Re: Tony Stewart 


He hasnt gotten away with it.

To answer the question, there is a level of consent on everyones part that is participating. And sadly if the kid doesn jump out of his car and starts marching at other race cars, none of this takes place. His actions directly began the events that led to his death.

An idiot driver walks around a track with cars flying by him looking for a fight and now is considered the victim. ohlord
