Nascar driver Tony Stewart kills Kevin Ward Jr. during on track argument.

    Stewart clearly gunned the engine when going past Ward, but Ward was also down in the racing groove which is  dumb on his part. I don’t think Tony meant to run him over but I think he certainly wanted to try and intimidate him as he went past.

    I’ll be surprised if there isn’t any sort of repercussions for Tony’s nascar career.

  • There aren’t nearly enough details to draw a clear conclusion at the moment, even with the footage being released.

    On one hand, the kid was stupid to run out on the track and it’s possible that it was very hard to see him in his black racing suit on a dimly lit dirt track in the middle of the night, causing Stewart not to notice him until it was too late.

    On the other hand, Stewart gunning his engine at that moment is really hard to explain because 1. there was a yellow flag (drivers told to slow to a crawl due to an accident) 2. even if there wasn’t a yellow flag, that’s not the part of the corner where you would accelerate, something that a veteran driver like Stewart surely understands

    Either way, it really sucks to see stuff like this happen in motorsports of any kind.
