This was a 25 lap race. Most of these dirt track races are on 1/4 mile tracks, although some are 1/8 or 3/8 miles tracks and occasionally 1/2 mile. 25 lap races are pretty typical and those races are over before you know it. Not even remotely close to 3 hours. The races are very short with several heats and classes of cars running throughout the night.

Interesting take here from another driver Cory Sparks giving his take from the angle he witnessed it at.

Fellow Sprint car racer comes forward with details following death of Kevin Ward Jr | PowerNation

I'm sure this has been brought up numerous times but for those that believe when he gave it gas coming up to ward to hit him or scare him, Sparks says in order for the car to turn you steer with the steering wheel and the bigger right tire. So according to sparks he was throttling it to try and turn to avoid Ward.

I agree with you. Dude is an idiot for getting out of his car.
