It was a caution and Stewart intentionally revved the engine when he got close to him. I assume he is looking at involuntary manslaughter at the LEAST.

Quote:

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."

After watching the video, hopefully Tony gets charged.....he just threw his career and possibly part of his life away over something so unecasaary. Granted the kid should not have gotten out and stood on the track (he's lucky someone else didn't hit him), but there's no excusing what he did. Scumbag

Omg it even looks like Stewart intentionally swerved into the guy. This isn't going to end well for Tony IMO. What an idiot.

I agree. Ward did get too damn close to Stewart but Stewart intentionally gunned the throttle. You don't do that on a caution EVER. Stewart is a freaking nut job.

Exactly, hopefully the investigation leads to criminal charges but if not I hope his racing career is over

The sick thing about this is that it isn't even surprising to me. He's always been out of control and on the edge of big trouble. I'm actually shocked something like this didn't happen sooner.

Exactly! if for some reason he does race again it will only be a matter of time before something else happens

I may be wrong but it looks like he saw him last second and yanked the wheel, gunned it to get away from him. NOBODY knows exactly what happened by that video.

I'm guessing he was trying to scare him by getting close and it backfired huge.

If only the cameraman didn't follow the 45 car, it might have been more clear what happened. Either way, hope the other guy is gonna be okay.

No matter what I or anyone else thinks we should get this video link taken down. I know it won't go away but out of respect for this young man and his family we shouldn't help spread it.

I agree. I don't believe he intentionally wanted to run the guy over. But that's not something a professional racing champ should be doing, who's the adult veteran here. He let his temper get the best of him yet again. This time it got out of control.

And clearly the video audio shows that Stewart gunned it. I don't see how one could say otherwise.

Looks like he floored it and bent right towards the guy. Although I guess the impact could have forced him right as well.

What a mess.
