I have been sitting here for over 4 hours trying to understand what happened last night at Canandaigua Speedway with Tony Stewart and the death of Kevin Ward Jr. I didn’t want to watch the video but I did – it’s inconclusive. Nobody knows what was going through Tony’s head at the time and nobody ever will unless he chooses to tell us. I assume he had a radio and a spotter, if so what was communicated at the time might cast some light on the situation. What do we know? It was completely avoidable and I think that says it all.
This incident will cast a long shadow over racing; NASCAR; Sprint Car racing; Stewart-Haas and it’s sponsors; Tony Stewart; and especially the Ward family and friends for years to come. RIP Kevin.
