Nascar Driver Tony Stewart Kills Dirt Track Racer (Warning Extremely Graphic Video)
Nascar driver Tony Stewart killed another driver last night while dirt track racing. After viewing the video, it's my opinion, that Tony slid up a bit in the turn, and caught the #13, causing him to slam into the fence.
The 13 was obviously upset at Tony, unbuckled himself, and walked out to the track, waiting for Stewart to come around the again. As you see in the video, the racer ahead of Stewart swerved to miss him. He continued to walk down a little further on the track as he saw Stewart approaching, and Stewart hit him.
Driver of the #13 was twenty year old Kevin Ward Jr., who did have much racing experience in dirt track. I, along with hundreds of others in the racing and media family, send condolences to the Ward family, and Tony Stewart as well.
Stewart will not race in today's Nascar event at Watkins Glenn. As Dale Jarrett, former Nascar driver, and now announcer explained, "there is no way Tony should race today. A driver needs to block out everything, and concentrate 100 % on the race, and obviously with last nights tragedy, that could not happen."
