A day after the tragic death of Kevin Ward Jr
., there is a lot out there to discuss. Apparently Tony Stewart was going to run his NASCAR race until his handlers told him he would look awful for doing so. Until that decision was made for him, Tony Stewart said it was just going to be business as usual. Tony and Kevin have a history of confrontations despite Kevin being just 20 years old when he was killed. They had hit each other and bumped each other in previous races and there was a great deal of bad blood between the two.
Drivers who were on the track said that all the drivers were under caution and that Tony Stewart could have easily seen Kevin standing in the road. Another driver had already gone around him with plenty of room to spare because the speeds they were traveling were so slow. One driver said it looked to him like Tony Stewart increased speed when he saw Kevin because these types of cars start sliding to the left when they increase speed which is exactly what Tony's did. Meanwhile, police are looking for any kind of evidence in the case but have struck out so far. At this point they are still calling it an on track incident and it is not a criminal investigation yet.
