......Tony haters are already saying he hit Ward on purpose . I know he can be a hot head at times...but would never do something like THAT....The video clearly shows Ward walking right into the path of the back tire ...un-avoidable. My heart goes out to Ward's family and friends........Just a terrible thing all the way around......

That's really tragic. I know this was not intentional, and as I have read on other places at least one person says he turned towards Ward. Anyone that sees the video can tell that the wheels did not turn till they made contact with Ward.
My prayers go out to Both Ward and his family, and friends, and Stewart and his family, and friends also.

Friends,

Personally knowing Tony and his family from the racing circuit in Indianapolis. Being involved in racing back in the day and even working on Tony's Pit Crew in a few races. I am here to tell everyone Tony would have never done anything to take another driver or anyones life! That is total ludicrous for anyone to believe that. He did make a move to the left when he saw Ward for a brief second. My prayers go out to the families of both and to Tony! I observed the video and even the first contact that put Ward's car into the wall was not intentional. Tony is very competitive but that was not an intentional Clip. With open wheel cars any contact at all can result in a terrible situation. I Have seen it a thousand times while with a racing team. This certainly was a tragedy, but also one should not run out into the middle of a race track when the cars are running. Standing along the side out of the car by the wall and shaking your fist or throwing a helmet is also dangerous but in the middle of the track is stupid. For those who do not know these short and banked corner tracks even at Yellow Flag speed coming off the corners you only have seconds to see what is ahead of you when you start the straightaway. With that said it is so sad for all that this situation occurred. God Bless all involved!

Winds,

No it was a Sprint Car race in NY!
The NASCAR Race is today.
Although Tony has a job to do and contractual obligations I can only presume how he feels today when he climbs into the NASCAR to race today. I am sure he will not be on his best game thinking about last evening. I know him!
God Bless him and all the families involved in the NY tragedy!

FOX News just advised that Tony will not be driving in the NASCAR Race today. I certainly understand! He wouldn't emotionally been on his game after the terrible tragedy last night in NY.

Tony's a pro and I like the guy . I don't even think he saw the guy in time cause there was a car in front of him . This is greasy , slippery dirt track racing , not like pavement !

I'm feeling sorry for all those involved , real bummer !
